Can a writer fully embrace vacation? Is it different for a writer with a day job vs. a full time writer? I love my vacations, whether to visit family or friends, whether it’s a 3 day weekend or 10 days off. But I miss my writing time.
With a full time day job, I don’t have nearly enough time for writing. It just seems a shame to take time off from work and not get any words put down on paper. But I can’t be anti-social and ignore my family or friends on those trips. The writing ends up taking a back seat.
I wonder if others manage to sit back and relax in the beach chair, book (or Kindle) in one hand, ice cold [insert beverage of your choice] in the other? Great scenery. Oh…you thought I meant the waves crashing against the shore. Ahem.
What about you? How do you manage to squeeze some writing time into your vacations? Or do you?
