Brain Need Break

My work days lately consist of uploading document after document after document after docu..zzzzz…well, you get the picture. In a word, mind-numbingly-boring. Usually I find some solace in the creative side of things, but with NaNo it is a little less about creativity and a lot more about speed. Get the word count, get the word count! The creativity will come later, when I can slow down and piece things together, fill in the missing parts and flesh the story out.

As much as I love this story and was excited to get going on it, I’m having trouble getting my head into it at times, struggling to sit down and get the job done. I think my brain just needs a break, to get out of the city and away from all the stresses of the everyday.

So, just in time to save me from the mundane, the BF comes up with a weekend away down along the south shore - which if you have never been down along the south shore of Nova Scotia, you really should go, it is not to be missed. We are going to stay at the
Blomidon Inn. Our getaway package includes overnight accommodations for two (hot tub in the room – woo hoo!), afternoon tea, Captain’s 4-course candlelight dinner for two, and a continental buffet breakfast the following morning.

Ahhhh…I can’t wait…

Meanwhile, you may notice some changes going on with my blog look. I'm going to try and switch the template and hopefully not screw things up. I've updated it which erased a lot of my sidebar stuff, so bear with me while I attempt to transition to something new... in all my spare time... please insert eye roll here...

Oh, that sounds nice. I can't remember the last time I got away for the weekend. San Fran was as close as it got and you know where I was spending my days. DH said if some of his lousy clients would pay their bills we could take a quick trip to Hawaii just the two of us.

It is much harder for NaNo because of the focus on speed. I'm not one for typos but I have to ignore them for NaNo. Time wasted with delete key is time wasted for writing.

Kelly, it sounds wonderful and romantic. Just the ticket to get your brain recharged - and a few other things too.

It all sounds quite lovely. And I love the new look! I decided to upgrade, too, because there are so many more things you can do with the new blogger template.
