Just a quick note while packing my bags for a trip south: I'm between writing projects which means while I'm scheming the distribution for the poetry/colouring book (DEVOTIONS), I'm also trying to corral the characters that keep showing up in my head for (not just 1 but) 2 Y/A stories (be they novels or novellas like ENOUGH available free on Wattpad.com).
How to pack for them, you might ask? Paper. Notes. Clippings. File folders to keep the stories separate. Laptop...for researching. But I'll also be packing a bathing suit, cap and nose plugs since I'm determined to dive right in! Wish me luck...
And aside from the writing materials, I'll also be bringing the pencil crayons and markers; the yarn and crochet hook; my tiny poetry scribbler for brain-dumps - all these as outlets for any frenetic creativity and to keep the anxiety (of vacationing?) of life in check.
On the laptop and the phone, I've also got lots and lots of music. Music to write by; to dabble by; to walk the beach by. Just for fun, check out the playlist I created for ENOUGH (which is on Wattpad). Here's the YouTube link to songs on a playlist (not my taste at all) that were channeled straight from my characters.
Cozy up during the winter, read and write! Til next time, peeps!!
