Day 1 of my Writing Vacation

Am I writing? Sure! I'm writing! I'm sitting in the sun with my laptop. HONEST! :) OK, maybe not yet. I am sitting in the sun. Just not writing. I posted this blog early so technically I'm not even in front of my computer!

But I will be. Why am I doing this on vacation? It's a writing vacation. One week in Puerto Rico to relax and have uninterrupted time to write. I know I can do this because 2 years ago I wrote the entirety of my werewolf story, Shadow State, during this vacation. It was a wonderful feeling of accomplishment.

While I don't plan to write all 50,000 words I need to write to finish this story, I do plan on a hefty chunk. It's plotted, planned, and scrutinized down to the last scene. Who knows, maybe 50K is possible, I'd settle for 30,000.

Tomorrow: Pictures from my window. Not that it's changed since last year, but since I'm here I should rub it in. There's no snow in PR! I wonder if the Farmer's Almanac has anything to say about that...

LOL we had gorgeous sunshine all weekend but I'm sure it's nothing compared to where you are!

Best of luck with the working vacation! Hope you get lots done.

Wow, you went to PR and you're writing all week? Looking forward to your photos of the beach! (Please do NOT post photos of your laptap - sun and beach would be much better for those of us stuck back home!)
