I am taking a much needed writing break. It will probably only be for three days – until next week – but if I can stretch it a little longer, I will. I need to just get away from the words and the frustrations of having no words and just —
Relax in the sun.
Take a load off.
I’ll still blog because, let’s face it, there’s no way I can give up all writing – even for just a day. I just won’t be pressuring myself to write, and I won’t touch the novel.
So, if you need me, I’ll be on the beach, or at a barbeque, or sipping on hot chocolate in front of “Pride and Prejudice”, or losing myself in the words of Emily Dickinson or Edgar Allen Poe.
touch me I’m golden
wild as the wind blows
if just for tonight darling, let’s get lost
