Well, even though I live in the UK, I think I can officially declare it: we’re approaching summer!
And honestly, I am ready for it. After so many coughs, colds, sniffles, and a two week bout of flu, I am definitely ready for the warmer weather. Maybe not drier. This is England, after all.
So, what are my plans for summer?
Number 1 (and this will surprise many of you)…rest!
I’m not very good at resting. I adore writing so much that honestly, it doesn’t always feel like work. It’s so easy for me to pick up the laptop and start tapping away, and before I know it, I’ve written another chapter.
It’s a real problem!
So I really am going to dedicate more time this summer to properly resting. That means switching off the internet, turning off emails, and seriously not allowing myself to be tempted to edit ‘just one chapter’…
Number 2…see family and friends!
I’m still in the post-pandemic mode of being desperate to see the people I care about, and now that I can, I will be packing in seeing as many people as possible.
And number 3, of course…reading!
I’m trying to read every new release from my author friends this year (!) and I either need to lose some friends, or ask them to slow down 😂 seriously thought, I have a bit of a backlog, and so I’m looking forward to curling up in my sunny garden with a hat and a gin and tonic, and losing myself in some really good books.
So over to you! What do you have planned for the summer?
