Summer is the perfect time to work on your writing projects and start the self-publishing process. Each week this month, I will offer advice to help you achieve your writing goals this summer. Be sure to check out last week’s post: Kick Off Summer with Self-Publishing.
Here is my advice this week — take a vacation. That’s right. Put aside your work, and take a vacation. It doesn’t matter whether you travel around the world or to the next town over. The key is go somewhere different from your usual routine.
While I encourage you to put work aside while on vacation, I don’t want you to completely forget your writing goals. Keep a camera, notebook, and recordable device with you. Later as you look back through your photos and thoughts you might find something that inspires your writing project.
One of my favorite quotes is by Ernest Hemingway: “In order to write about life, first you must live life.” Keep this in mind as you enjoy your summer and work on your writing projects.
