Writer’s Vacation–Kayaking and Reflection in Maine

We have been kayaking daily if weather permits.  I can’t say this adds to my collection of people jobs or reactions.  But kayaking is both great exercise and relaxing. Both are good for the writer’s health.  Taking care of yourself—de-stressing is important.  The Maine vacation is always a calm-down time, a time to reflect, gather new ideas and get in touch—with my thoughts, with nature, with others.

That guy–the good looking one– is my own romantic hero!

Maine is good for my writer’s soul.  My first published novel is set in Maine.  I started the first book of my WIP series in Maine.  I ‘got the call’ from editors while I was in Maine.

A pink granite rock beckoned me the day we arrived.  It was my spot to write, reflect and just enjoy the view.

Relaxation, time to breathe and enjoy, time to count your blessings—all good.
