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.
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!
