On Hols. Back Sep.

on holiday back september markmccluretoday

It’s crazy hot in Tokyo.

This time last year I was in cool, green and showery Belfast. Man, could we do with some of that here at the moment.

Writing continues but with a tweak.

Fiction occupies a regular Mon to Fri schedule.

However, non-fiction (such as this blog post), rest, relaxation and (especially) reading for pleasure are now the territory of the weekend.

I think this works well because the temptation to stay on the writing treadmill of words, words and yet more words, seven days a week, can became an addiction and even an obsession.

Taking a break is good.

Storytelling can be hard work (at times) but above all, it must be fun.

Back in September.
