Summer Doldrums



Summertime is the time when I lay back and relax. Although I'm working on a sequel to Galaxy Nomads, called Gemini: Chronicles of the MacKenzie Clan, I'm moving at a slower pace. I like to call it the summer doldrums because I'm like this picture: I'm lying on the beach staring out at the water wishing I was somewhere else.

But I'm not somewhere else, so I have to make the most of these lazy days. The caption on this picture says: Make Each Day A Memory! While I lie on the beach, I need to do something that will make this day special. It doesn't have to be something major, just a small thing to remember. The fun thing is that some of those special things I can use in my books. It's the things that I do and observe that develop into parts of my stories.

How do you make memories and get special ideas for your books? Are you in the summer doldrums? What do you do to get out of them?

  1. I always mean to lay back and just enjoy summer but there's always so much going on. I'll be on the beach in about two weeks and I hope to have my WIP almost finished by then so I can be thinking about the next one.

    1. Susan: That's wonderful! It's always a celebration when you finish a book. It's time to enjoy the beach. I wonder - will your next one have the beach in it? LOL!
