What I do for fun when I'm not writing...

First, writing is like motherhood - it is a 24 hour job. At least it is for me. When I'm out and about, I look for writing books or novels to read for research. Or I'm thinking of my WIP and have to write something down before I forget it.

As for fun, well, I don't do much in way of going out with my husband. We had our fun before our son was born and we'll have fun again when our son is grown. We're fine with that. We do things as a family.

What I do to RELAX away from writing is another story. I read, play board games with family, clean and rearrange furniture, turn up the country music and sing and dance like a nut in my living room - sometimes with the cat on my shoulder!

What do you do for fun/relaxation?


  1. I am totally with you on the whole singing and dancing to loud country music! Well, except for the cat...I'm allergic.

    On that note, I'm on my way out and I plan on cranking up the Kenny in the car.

    Too fun!

  2. Agree about the 24 hour job. Ideas can occur to me at any moment and whatever else I'm often thinking about where my characters are up to in their story, or mulling over some plot development.

  3. She can only take so much, Ana. Then the soft little meow starts.

    Tranlated into English it means, "Help!!!!"

    Thats when I set her free.

    I miss my Black Lab. Now he was a dancer. When his front paws were placed on my chest, he was my size. He danced with me until I was tired.
