A Rest

Some random thoughts from Washington D.C.

This weekend I am spending time with my good friends in Washington before I finally return home. This is a little bit of a break before I throw myself back into normal life, work, and regular writing. It also serves as a bit of a transition from my life in England to life back in the U.S. Transitions are as necessary in life as they are in writing.

So this week I am having a bit of a break, a transition period between my life as a student writing non-fiction and my life at home; working, writing fiction, and settling in as a family. This transition period is perhaps not necessary, but it certainly is nice. A mini-vacation from the worries and duties of every-day life, and time to turn my creative faculties from writing about Ancient Egyptian women to writing about Steampunk women with no pressure. Which isn’t to say I’m not writing a bit anyway. When the words happen, I would be a fool to suppress them.

In the spirit of laziness and resting, I leave you a short post and the assurance of longer posts to come when life settles back into a regular routine. Meanwhile, I think I’m going to go visit my Steampunk girls.

Thought for the Week: “Change in all things is sweet” Aristotle

    But… pressure is an important part of what makes steam powered engines work!

      Hah. True. And I do write better under pressure. Still, having a break is nice! ^_^
