I haven’t yet mastered the writing-traveling balancing act. I traveled much more than usual the past 7 months; although it was amazing, I’m happy to be home for a while. My most recent trip was to Cincinnati for an English conference. It’s always the highlight of my year. I come home refreshed and ready to write with dozens of quote-filled iPhone notes.
One particular quote from a presenter that stuck: “Anyone’s work who was not essential could go home. No one wanted to think they weren’t essential.” I think writers feel this fear even when jobs demand excellent writing.
Putting those writing fears aside, I have a few blogs that I have worked on for quite some time. Stay tuned.
