Back in July, I blogged about how summer begins and ends for me at the New Jersey shore. This year was no different. I spent the last two weeks of August in Seaside Park, New Jersey. My happy place. It was the perfect time of year and location to recharge and get ready for September, that magical month when things seem to begin again even if it has been ages since I sat in a classroom.
So...how did I recharge? Well, for starters, this blog post is the most amount of words I've strung together since July. (I hope my agent doesn't see this.) I did read lots of books, though, and I thought about writing, which practically is writing, right?
Other than that, I sat in this chair -- a lot -- watching pods of dolphins swimming by...Osprey fishing in the surf...my daughter boogie boarding with her cousins and friends.
And ate fish tacos with guac and chips here.
Recharging was getting addicting.
On Labor Day I got a Goodreads message from a librarian who wanted to tell me how much he enjoyed my books. It was good timing. He ended his note by saying. "Please tell me you're writing more books." Umm...riiiight. More books. Time to say "goodbye" to this. Fold up my beach chair, and get back to work.
