On Getaways


My bestie and I spent a weekend away in a cabin halfway between our cities and without even trying, I wrote 5k words.

The relaxation and freedom and friendship fueled my writer energy. And she hyped up my creative work is such sweet ways (think custom cake and matching nail art for “Chronicles of My Alien Invasion Life”).

Plus, we were on a lake so I soaked up the scenery and will hopefully remember to add descriptions to this draft. (I am gearing up for editor feedback that says “use adjectives”).

We napped, played games, relaxed, drank coffee, grilled out, sat by the camp fire. It was a dream.

I know that travel like this isn’t possible for a lot of people right now, but I’m so glad she and I were able to getaway. I’ll be daydreaming I’m still there for the foreseeable future.

Hello! I'm an aspiring author of humorous books about space gays and alien invasions. I might occasionally toss in a dragon or mermaid, and I can't wait to share my weirdness with the world.
