"A writer never has a vacation. For a writer life consists of either writing or thinking about writing."
It's the first week of June and I haven't seen the sun this month. What I've experienced are temperatures barely in the 50s and loads of rain. A little sunshine would make me the happiest writer alive right about now, but that ain't happenin'. So I'm just going to sit here and stare at this photo for a while. You're welcome to join me. . .
Ahhhh, don't we all feel better now?
Have you ever taken a vacation from writing? I have. But I agree with Mr. Ionesco, a writer never has a vacation. Seriously. I don't think I can go more than a few hours without thinking about some aspect of writing. Earlier this week I even dreamed I was in my story. Scary! But that's just all part of living the writer's life, eh? We wouldn't have it any other way.
How about you? Have you ever tried to stop thinking about writing? Did you succeed?
