Mini-Breaks For the Writer’s Soul
Recently, I interviewed Judith McGee for LadyAdvisor.com -- besides being absolutely fabulous, she also encouraged and advocated mini-vacations. I decided to take her advice and booked a 3night/4day vacation in sunny (and hot!) Las Vegas.
For the first time ever, I didn't take an ounce of work or homework with me. I took books, like Mastery of Love and The Celestine Prophecy instead. I wrote poetry. About crazy drunk people in swimming pools. But, whatever. The point was I was thinking and writing creatively and completely outside my norm. It felt soooo good!
I laid by the pool in 90 degree heat and looked at my life back in the Pacific NW in a whole new way. I felt gratitude. And when I returned 4 days later, I was ready to dive back in...
What's your favorite mini-break vacation spot?
