As fellow blogger Linda wrote last week, sometimes a writer is due ‘time off’. Even if that time off is just to refill the well of ideas and tinker with plots and … OK, maybe a writer never really does have time off? But in summer, when many of us have so much going on, it’s definitely time to be kind to yourself and only do what you can do. So, no word targets for me at the moment. But I’ve still been working on websites, polishing synopses, uploading latest YA novel to Createspace. And doing a lot of thinking about things I’m going to write when I have the time and head space.
Some of the inspiring things that have happened so far this summer:
Showing my sister my new house and all those views.
Attending the Romantic Novelists’ Association annual conference. So much writing-related talk. Plus other talk. And there was wine.
Oh, and then there was my niece’s wedding which was such fun I’m definitely going to put a wedding in a book sometime soon.
Summer may be busy, but it certainly hasn’t left me short of ideas!
