Countdown to Vacation


A-writer-never-has-a-vacationIn just two¬†hours, my vacation officially begins, or does it? According to this quote, a writer never has a vacation, and to be honest, I can hardly call my time away from the office a relaxing getaway. For starters, I’m having one of those staycations where you don’t leave your house. I won’t be leaving home much, except to meet with a client to discuss an editing project. Other than that, I will hardly leave my room. During my vacation I’ll be editing, blogging, writing, thinking about writing, finishing some very-overdue library books, putting together furniture for my room, and probably watching “Frozen” and “The Hobbit” at least a dozen times.

Sometimes you don’t have to go far to get away. For me, I’m going to be right where I want to be, doing exactly what I’d like to do every day of the year. If that isn’t the definition of a vacation, I don’t know what is.
