Beth and I try to make certain each of us takes time off. Even if it’s just a couple of hours. Back in February when I started setup, Beth had been working two months straight. She had taken an hour here or there, but even while out, she was on and focused on her writing.
It drove Dorian crazy. He likes all the attention focused on the conversation when he’s there. I swear Beth does it just to mess with him, but their friendship is like that.
He pokes her, she pokes him. Like a big brother, little sister thing.
Anyhow, as of Saturday I’m off work for a week across my birthday. Thank goodness work was okay with that. I’m not exactly the most stable person on my birthday, which actually has little to do with getting older and more to do with having no family to rely on.
An entire week, no writing. Whatever am I going to do with myself?
I’ll be back to work July 31st, restarting a novel August 1st. Along with editing and combing through formatting on Taken and Broken.
I’m supposed to be walking all over next week. Exploring the city to keep myself busy. Dorian promises to keep me out of the apartment and busy the entire time (out of his apartment too, we tried that last year and it didn’t work).
Exploring could be good for the creative flow.
