The month of June is almost over and looking at my schedule for the rest of the summer, it won’t be long until school starts. So, I thought of some things to do to keep my writing fresh with all the activities.
Read. I like to sit out on my balcony in the warmer weather and read, and sometimes before I know it, I dose off for a while thinking about what I just read. I have some fiction and nonfiction books I want to tackle for personal growth and books on craft.
Journal. This is one way to write, even though you may not have an article or assignment to work on. Get a new journal for the summer and maybe a special pen to use. I always love excuses to buy a new journal!
Clean. I read it, again, somewhere this week, to spend your time writing, not looking for your files and reference materials. Try to go through some old files you have been putting off. Removing and or discarding a stack of papers from my desk gives me such a feeling of accomplishment.
Learn. As you clean your office, insert a CD in your computer and listen to a class from a conference you attended.
Take a Nap. Yes. This is important. Rest and Refresh.
What are you doing to keep your writing fresh this summer?
