I'm one of those people who has to always be busy. I take vacations, but usually I work while I'm there. Sometimes because I have to other times because I feel I must get more done.
I've worked in Mexico. I've spent a day working at a hotel in Disney. I've had to buy an Internet plan to work on a cruise ship in San Juan. This trip I'm working on a novel and catching up on writing that I haven't made the time for.
Just before I left, I finished narrating my first novel for Audible. It's not one of my books and I was so honored to be chosen to narrate it. I'll tell you more about it when I can. I am also narrating a fiction book. It's my new favorite thing.
So with this trip I plan to write and enjoy time with my husband...my very own hero. The first weekend in February I went to the Rhode Island Writer's Retreat in Newport. It was a great way to kick off our trip. I loved meeting new people who I'd seen, but never spoken to. I enjoyed hanging with my writer friends, Delsora Lowe, who has a story in Woman's World and multi-published author Terri Brisbin.
The second Saturday of this month, after a few trips to Disney, I will spend the day with one of my Maine friends at her new local chapter for a day long master class about Indie Publishing with some fabulous speakers.
Attending writers conferences is a way to get motivated and excited about writing and an industry that can frustrating sometimes.
The reason we keep going? You...the readers. I want to entertain you, give you a chance to escape everyday life and perhaps make you laugh.
Happy February and Valentines Day!
