|On the beach with Mr. Fear-No-Waves|
I’d planned on writing during my weeklong family vacation. And not just writing – blazing through the draft of my second novel in a flurry of editing. But nope; somehow, I only wrote two of the seven nights, and on those two nights, I refined and polished only one scene.
So what happened? I encountered a few difficulties. One was the layout of the rooms we rented. Snoring children occupied two of the bedrooms as my husband and I found they could not fall asleep while in the same room. The only room left remaining was the combined den/kitchen area, and no way was my husband going to click off the cable television (we aren’t subscribers at our home). Struggling to right a difficult scene in my draft simply did not rivet me the way the turmoil encountered on the Deadliest Catch did.

In the meantime, my next vacation looms. Are you looking forward to a summer vacation? Care to share your destination and activity plans?
