I don't get out much. And today I realized that is a problem.
I'm so focused on making my books the best they can be that it really slurps up all my time. And everything I do is targeted towards some aspect of them...which is nice, but doesn't really get me away from the whole writing thing, you know? Normally I don't mind, but I think that the progressively crazier and all-encompassing my life gets with this writing thing, the more important it will be to step away.
So I did something not me today. I rode a bicycle with my honey, for an hour to the grandparents and back an hour, and it was great. I was out in nature, I was enjoying the sun, and the light, and the wind, and the smells...I didn't think about my book once. I get that way when I work out but this was easier, somehow...better.
I need to be able to take some time away, and I'll do it more often now.
What do you do to get away?
