Go Teen Writers

Ever since I was in my late teens I’ve been a part of an amazing online writing community called Go Teen Writers. Over the years I’ve stopped doing quite so much with the group since I am in my mid twenties after all, but I still find it a great place to connect and learn.

Miss Stephanie, the founder of Go Teen Writers recently asked me to guest post on the blog, and I was honored to do so. You can check out the post – which went live today – here.

This week I’m on vacation, and as you can see it’s delightful. In fact, I’m swinging in a hammock with the palm fonds rustling above me as I write.img_2737-1

For this vacation I decided to do something very strange for me: I didn’t bring my computer. Last year when we were on vacation at the same location my computer was stolen, and I was amazed at how much more restful the time was when I couldn’t work. Normally I’m trying to balance rest time, family time, and work time, with the work always looking me in the face, reminding me of how much I have to do.

My family life has various changes happening over the next few months, so I knew this trip was going to be extra special for me. Therefore I wanted to be able to focus all my time on my family (and resting) instead of using it as a time to catch up with writing work which is what I usually do on vacation.

I hope y’all are having a wonderful Monday!

    So important to have family time on vacation, and also to relax! I took some books on creativity with me to read over spring break but didn’t get around to all of them…but I did take a lot of beach selfies with my daughter!

      Aww, that’s so sweet! I’m glad you were able to spend good time with your daughter. I’ve been back home for five days now and am still scrambling to catch up, but it was worth it. 😉
