Room with a View


We are on vacation this week and this is the view from my window.  I love this place.  We're in Palm Desert for a week as a family on a much needed break.  Vacation with the family brings me a lot of joy because of the quality time I have with my boys, including hubby.  BUT...it leaves very little time for my writing.

For me, I like writing in total silence in chunks of time.  If I can't get more than an hour to myself then I will just spend it surfing blogs or posting.  Usually I don't allow myself to read blogs at home much because it takes away from my writing time (knee deep in WIP) but since vacation doesn't offer much solitude, it's a guilty pleasure I dive into.

Speaking of diving (lame set-up I know) but I need to hit the pool this AM, after the gym of course.  You guys have a beautiful sunny day!

Does your writing, blogging, commenting go on vacation when you do?

  1. I generally don't bring my blogging when I'm on vacation, unless I get somewhat inspired.
    I'll write on vacation though. Certainly something to do on a plane.
    Happy vacation!

  4. As The Husband points out, a vacation is supposed to be a vacation for ALL of us, and if I'm welded to a computer, then that's exactly what he gets at home, so it's no vacay for him.

    So I, er, solve it this way: I just avoid vacations! :-)

  5. My writing is always with me, even if it is just as a thought in the back of my mind.

    Blogging and commenting may come with me if the place we stay has an internet connection (some still don't or they charge too much).

    There must be something in the air, we are heading off on vacation tomorrow!

  7. I don't do a whole lot of writing when I'm on vacation. I have other stuff planned typically and don't find time to write.

  8. I am now turning green with envy. Looks like a beautiful place. I often take a break from blogging to write. But when I'm on holiday, I prefer not to work at all, though sometimes, I'll find my way to the laptop to write anyway.

    Enjoy the rest of your holiday!
