Welcome to another month of Indie Life, a chance for indie authors to meet, exchange news and tips, and commiserate on what it means to be an independent author. If you’d like to join us, go here.
So…those summer days. They are long. I’m not sure where they’re going. 🙂
I’ve noticed a fair number of my author friends taking chunks of the summer off from blogging, and even from writing. It’s a great decision. Long summer days should pull us outside, get our bodies moving and having those experiences that lead to the rich internal life of an author. You must live to write. Late in the spring I was feeling the need for some space, so I slowed my writing pace over the summer. I think it will serve me well when the weather cools off and I’m ready to hunker down in my nest with my iPad. I’ll have all those words stored up. Ha!
Our family has postponed vacations until the end of the summer. We’re headed to Hawaii in a few weeks, for a full week. A solid chunk of my husband’s family is going, and we’re gonna have a blast! That said, between a big trip and the new school year, I’ve been swamped with logistics and schedules. I’m ready to move beyond the packing lists and high-tail it outta here!
What have you done recently to rejuvenate and add inspiration?
I’ll be in Kona next month during Indie Life. Enjoy these long summer days! 🙂
