|Naples, FL Sept 2011 Photo by Miranda Hardy|
A couple of weeks ago I took such a trip. I escaped to the west coast...Naples, FL with a writing friend. We stayed in one of her family member's condo for free and wrote our little hearts out for two days straight. It was fabulous.
Sure, we were tempted by the beach, which we did visit for an hour one day, but we eventually barricaded ourselves inside and wrote.
I slept well. I ate healthy. No headaches. No bellyaches. No stress...it revitalized my writing. It brought life back to my current WIP.
So, even if it's an escape for a day, four hours, take off from your house. Visit your library. Find a great tree to sit under. Just spend time rejuvenating yourself and your writing by getting away from your daily tasks.
