The Vacationing Writer

It has been great being on vacation, but I’m discovering oodles of extra free time does not necessarily translate into me spending oodles of time writing. The temptation is to beat myself up over this, to declare myself ‘not really a writer’, but I realize that would be a silly and pointless thing to do.

I am a writer. Regardless of how often I write in comparison to other people or my regular schedule, I. Am. A. Writer.

Besides which, I’m on vacation. As such, I am trying to get a few things done I normally push aside in anticipation of days like today. Things like going through stuff in my house, getting a bit of yard work done, trying a new exercise program, reading, napping . . . it’s quite exhausting to think about it all, really. I hope I don’t need a vacation after my vacation.

^What shade of white is this . . .?

I also spent the better part of an hour on Tuesday tinkering with the colour scheme of my blog. I’m debating changing themes altogether, but I’m not sure to what. All I know is I’m looking for something with a bit more “pop”. (If you have any ideas or suggestions, feel free to fire off in the comments section.) And guess what? The tinkering ate up some writing time.

Friday will be a day you won’t want to miss, however. I’m making my way through a pretty fantastic book right now, and am working on getting the particulars for a giveaway of said book! Now that’s all I’m going to say on the matter – come back at the end of the week for the details.

Oh, but my vacation is demanding I get some coffee and catch up on some more reading. I’ll catch you all later! :-)
