This was not a terribly productive week but I still managed some good days. Thursday was a difficult day for me where no matter how hard I tried, the words were just not coming. After an hour and a half, I accepted that and gave myself permission to take a break and watch TV. Monday and Friday were full days at my day job, so I knew in advance that I wasn't going to have writing time.
But now I am sitting in Charleston, South Carolina, with some wonderful ladies and we'll be spending the week writing and having a great time. We have a house on the beach with a gorgeous view so I can sit with my laptop and listen to the waves. I've always found the ocean to be a settling influence for me and it's one of the things I miss about living in Ottawa: not having an ocean to listen to.
We go on family trips through the year and I have business trips sometimes but this is my vacation and I'm looking forward to getting my batteries recharged and being ready to charge ahead for Nanowrimo.
