I’m participating in the weekly blogging challenge at Long and Short Reviews.
I can’t say my days are terribly exciting. Go to work. Laundry. Cooking. Laundry. Cleaning. Laundry. I hate laundry. I don’t have a job where I can guarantee writing in the mornings or evenings. If freelance work is hectic, the only time I can dedicate to writing are stray thoughts in a notebook I keep with me constantly. But every now and then, I get to schedule writing days…particularly it I am working on the second draft-the edits and rewrites-which is the most difficult. (And my current struggle.)
Everyday is a reading day!!! I don’t know what I’d do without books.
But what I try to do everyday is make sure I get a chance to appreciate the outdoors.
It’s essential for me to get some physical exercise. I used to be really poor at this. I’d tell myself it was too much trouble to go to the swimming pool; too much traffic to drive to the gym-any excuse. But I have learned that it is vital to move my body. I have to make sure my muscles are strong. I can sleep better and write better when my body is in shape.
I am a big fan of short hikes. I am fortunate to live in a place with lots of nature that has several parks and a small mountain right behind my house. There are several marked courses I can take-the shortest about 30 minutes, the longest about 2 hours- at a steady pace. So, I thought I’d share a few pictures. If I want to vary my excursions, I take a bicycle ride along the seaside.
And when I’m done-I watch some SF; usually an episode of Star Trek. A Trek a day keeps the doctor away. 🙂 Currently, I am working through THE EXPANSE.
So, how was your day? Did you see anything beautiful you’d like to share?
*I also write romance books. I don’t promo myself much, but feel free to check out my website.
