Since finishing FIRE, I've had a remarkably quiet summer - at least where writing is concerned. Only lately have I been dabbling in my new project. As a result, I've spent most of the season "refilling the well," a writer's term for not writing in order to recharge his or her batteries. It has been exquisite! Not only am I doing other artsy things (painting, gardening, cooking/baking, etc.) but I am gathering scenes and ideas in the back of my head for my new book. I had forgotten how much good it does a writer's soul to step back from her project and just be. I've given myself until the official start of fall to take my break (even though the stores have already begun doling out pumpkin everything). After fall begins, it's back to business.
Here's to relaxing and recharging!
