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.
