The vacation

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.


  1. I never get any writing done when we go on vacation. If I'm lucky, I get some reading in.

  2. *Grumble* I wrote a wonderful comment and it was wiped away. What I think I said was I typically read while on vacation. I rarely write because of being away with family. A book I can put down and come back to... a scene started needs to be finished and I doubt I would be able to do that with others about. I am the family photographer too--so I guess one might saw I capture the moments on film (digital now of course) vs. writing our moments. Although, I'm asked daily to record the fish caught by whom, and weight and length. So accurate bragging may begin once we return to the states.
