Shortly before we left for Guatemala I started rewriting one of my manuscripts. I was hoping it would kick start my thoughts about it while we were away.
It worked, but not as well as I'd hoped.
Getting away is a great way to refresh your mind, your energy, and your soul. I thought not having a computer in front of me it would free my thoughts to roam at will.
They did, and they were happy.
Over the course of the two weeks many ideas for rewriting flowed to me along with ways to improve other manuscripts.
It was good. I was renewed. Invigorated even.
Then I came home, fired up the computer and my mind went as blank as_______.
I am sure everything will be fine in a few more days. Travel is wonderful, but it requires recovery time.
I did open a file on a manscript earlier and made a few corrections. As I did I felt fog clearing, gears grinding, the quickening brought by a cool morning breeze.
In another day or so when the last of the trip laundry is put away and I've caught up on the bills and sleep and my thoughts have gathered I will be writing again.
I'm looking forward to it.
