It's so easy to get distracted from writing in the summer. The weather is perfect, the kids are out of school and wanting to hang out. I want to be outdoors, too. So, I take my work outside. While the kids are turning cartwheels or reading in the park, I find a quiet place in the shade and I write. Every thirty minutes or so, I stretch my legs, throw the Frisbee, then I go back to writing. Sometimes I write on a legal pad and other times I use my iPad and email the work to my desktop, but either way, I get the words out and I am inspired by nature and best of all, I get to be with my family.
