Back In The Real World

No, I didn't go away to another planet or fantasy land, but it may as well have been. I love travelling, so when I am on holiday (which for me means getting up early, being busy all day and going to bed exhausted) all the boring stuff of life just disappears. That's what two weeks in Turkey were like. Extreme non-stop touring, but brilliant. But what has that got to do with writing? Well, while I didn't work on any stories or assignment, I did keep a travel journal. There is a lot still I need to write in it, which I didn't have time for, so by the time I am finished, the whole journal will be complete. Then there is the fact that I shall be using various cultural/historical things I learnt during the trip for my stories. So travel is good. I doubt June will be very productive in writing terms as now only two weeks left, and I am currently obsessing over new SIMS 3. So two weeks to play it to death, and take it easy with writing. Easy, not stop. I still hope to achieve some productivity. With which project exactly - that remains to be seen....


  1. Sounds like you had a great time! :-)

    I've completely neglected my WB assignments the past few weeks, need to get my latest short finished and edited.

    My tutor likely thinks me dead.


  2. I think journaling is very important. It's perhaps the most sincere writing we do since we're writing fact. That helps to make fiction more realistic. I'm glad you are having such a great time!
