I’ve an even shorter time to finish my NaNoWriMo this year as I am flying off to Palm Springs to visit a good friend and fellow author, Suzanne Burkett, on Wednesday 28th November. So I need to have my word count over the 50,000 before then. It is a race as always but just a smidge more stressful with two days less but I am determined to succeed.
An oasis in many ways.
My visit was booked way back in June so its been a long time coming. It will be a time for exploring, connecting and sharing and I’m sure inspiration will follow. Maybe a novel idea will spring up – LOL I know bad joke. Palm Springs has a very creative and artistic culture that I am excited to see for myself. Getting away from the Albertan cold will be a nice bonus too. Of course I have organised meals for the family in my absence and hopefully they will survive.
Do you ‘abandon’ your family for vacations or retreats ? What is or was your favorite one?
My daughter departs for England on Monday leaving me feeling apprehensive she will be alright on her first solo flight but also a sense of excitement that I will have three weeks of writing ahead of me without interruption. The adults in the household will have to fend for themselves as I plunge into my ebook launch and subsequent promotion. Once it is released I can decide, which novel I want to return to. Will it be the speculative fiction – Life in Slake Patch or the erotic re-incarnation – The Twesome Loop? I will let my muse guide me.
So with an extended amount of time available what do you immerse yourself in?
