Sometimes it is the attention to detail that relaxes me. Absolute concentration on shape and form lets the rest of my brain have a nap.
With black and white sketches there is the added vacation from color stimulation.
The time spent drawing is 'alone time' but in such a different way from writing.

At these times I find myself laughing while I work. And sometimes I work in yarn making crazy hats for kids.
I always go back to my writing refreshed.
