Writing While on Vacation

I recently took a mini vacation from my job at The Inn to visit my daughter and her boyfriend for her birthday. It was an enjoyable visit, and I got much accomplished for the writing business.

The bus ride from Bangor to Caribou, then from Caribou to Old Town on the way home, netted me a few hours each way to concentrate on brainstorming for the business. I spent 2 mornings at the University of Maine at Fort Kent writing and note taking while Skye and Jonas worked. Blog posts and articles were written, and plans were made.

I enjoyed being able to accomplish these tasks. Having a clear mind to finish a few small projects and think of a few new ones. Writing is like a vacation for me. I find the act freeing.
