To me, a vacation is doing something I really want to do with boring times stuck in between the good things. It means writing my story, researching and contemplating while relaxing, perhaps visiting a museum or touring different countryside.
It does not mean being stuck in a place where I can't do any of these things. That, I would say, is more like being in prison.
I need quiet. I need time to think. I need a space to write and create. I need some small diversions other than eating.
We just got back from vacation.
I actually managed to hand write three legal size pages of drek. That was all I could do.
If watching the last half of Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark could be considered research, well, that's my research.
I could say a few choice words, all of them blue, because my lovely ideas and plans did not come to fruition. Now, I have to settle down and get with the story.
Oh, just one little bluey stuck in here.
