My original plan was to work on a new series I've had circulating in the back of my head while we were down there. The weeks leading up to our trip had been filled with edits on two different books and I was looking forward to letting my creative side out. to play.
But, it didn't quite work out that way. I tried to plot on the plane, but got distracted by a book I'd been looking forward to reading. (Leah Brooke's Night Rogues) and the first day of travelling was exhausting. The harder I tried to focus on creating a new series, the less I was able to.
So I figured it wasn't mean to be and didn't worry about it. Instead my week was filled with trips to Busch Gardens and walks on the beach. My notebook and pen sat on the counter all week as my creative well started to refill.
My daughter and I got a puzzle that took us all week to finish. That was harder then it looks LOL. All four of us worked on here and there. I knit on a light weight scarf I wanted to make. Lots of walks on the beach created a collection of interesting shells for another project to work on when we got home. The girls loved finding perfectly formed shells but I liked the broken ones with character and interesting colours. I found pieces of coral that looked like a octopus arms.
Next month I have a new Steampunk novel coming out and in the New Year I'm looking forward to trips to Ecstasy Lake and getting to know some new characters that have been chatting away in my head,.
