I am heading off to the beach. So happy to say those words out loud, write them down, think of them. I am heading off to the beach. It says freedom, relaxation, sunshine, seagull cries, the crashing waves, someones music in the distance. It’s lying on a beach blanket letting your mind wander, drifting in and out of sleep. And thinking . . .
And when you clear your mind, new things can enter.
We have rented a house for two weeks where the family can get together in one of my favorite seaside towns on Cape Cod. The perfect all American small town feel for the Fourth of July complete with a small town parade, band concerts and fireworks, family events and plenty of ice cream shops for the daily dose of sweet creamy goodness.
But when I am not indulging in my ice cream cravings or need for sun and surf, I am looking forward to creating. I have one book ready to release, another I am about one third of the way through writing, and books three and four circling the back of my mind competing for attention and waiting for the light of day. . . or perhaps a rainy day. In two weeks when I return to my daily life I have a feeling I will also be full of character and plot ideas.
The main goal will be preparing for the book launch to have plans in place in case these last few queries don’t pan out. I have a good feeling about the story . . . hoping an agent takes a chance, but if not . . . Kindle, here I come!
