Some of you who know me know that I travel a lot for work. When I say a lot, I mean 50% of the time. I spend large amounts of time in airports, hotels, Second Cups, and Starbucks. Sometimes I’m stuck in airports for nine hours at a time. What on earth do I do with my time? I read, edit, write, revise, and try to work on my grammar.
I've been working on this novel for almost two years non-stop, until recently. I wanted to share a little about how I work around my schedule, since I get asked every so often. Recently I've taken a break from my writing, I think I needed to step back. I think it’s like when I paint, the longer I'm working on a part of it I'm not satisfied with, the more I feel I can't fix it. I need to walk away. The next time I return to the painting it is easy to see what wasn't working, what was out of proportion, what colour I wasn't mixing right. I think my month long sabbatical is almost over. I did get a lot of relaxing reading in. Time to get back to work.
