Ah, the shore! Sparkling sands and glittering waves, saltwater taffy, fudge-making demonstrations, surrey avoidance, shopping, shopping and more shopping! Okay, so most of my shopping was of the “window” variety. Still it was wonderful and relaxing, I feel inspired again to write more of my romance novel Hollow Hearts and Hollow Hills.
I took the text with me in a printed or hardcopy version and actually flipped through it a few times, making notations. Cut an entire chapter (some of which will be interspersed as flashbacks, some will be saved for a possible "prequel"). Also discovered by deepening one scene (when Janet meets her potential husband) I can eliminate one that made me waAAay too uncomfortable. So, I got a little stuff done (had a lot of fun, though), and it looks like I'll pull a three-day writing excursion there in the off-season. Hopefully this book will be put "to bed" by then and I'll be working with something else.
Hope you're writing or doing something refreshing!
