Hey my readers,
Spring is coming and it is beautiful! Not to mention the NFL draft is around the corner…sorry I couldn’t help myself. Perhaps I shouldn’t write about football so much. Love me for me reader!
In just a few short days I’m going on what the English language calls a ‘vacation’. It’s an elusive thing that many humans seem to enjoy doing.
I’m going with my family in celebration because my dear father has been declared cancer free! So the fam bam is going to Hawaii!
One of my good friends was saying to me the other day, “You know Missy, I’m really glad you’re going on vacation. You have been working so hard on your writing, I think it will be really good for you.”
And I was like…do writers really go on ‘vacation’? I don’t think so and here’s why.
The definition of Vacation: “a scheduled period during which activity is suspended”.
I don’t know about you but if I’m not writing…I’m thinking about writing. For instance, this morning while putting together a bowl of cereal I was thinking about my newest plot and I put the milk in the cupboard and my cereal box in the fridge.
So I cant really go on vacation can I? Because there is no way I can get my brain to ‘suspend’ thinking about writing.
I don’t think writers get vacations. That’s not to say traveling and breaking your everyday routine isn’t beneficial because it totally is! But our vacation isn’t the typical vacation.
And you know what? That doesn’t bother me in the slightest.
