Holidays Whinging Writers Journey

Lovely Holiday – No writing done

This year my husband and I decided to spend our annual holiday visiting my sister in-law and her husband. They moved to Peachester in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland about 18 months ago.  It is a pretty but slow moving part of the world, and I was hoping to get in plenty of reading and writing during the visit. However it was not meant to be.

The whole visit was a strictly planned affair from start to finish. (Planned by our hosts – not us). Set times for meals, restrictions on food we could eat at meals (I am not kidding), activities scheduled for every waking moment of the day and almost no flexibility. It all went off with military precision.

We had a really great time, and I am aware that all of the planning was all done for us (at some expense to them in terms of money and time).  Many of the activities were fun and entertaining, but sometimes (especially for us city folk), it is really just enough to experience the environment, enjoy the good company  and stare at the chickens.

I am embarking on a new adventure and trying to make my way in the world as a professional writer - Science fiction & crime mostly.

I also like loads of really boring things like gardening, craft work and baking. Oh and I eat a lot.
