A Writer On Vacation?

A writer on vacation?
Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart

A writer never has a vacation. For a writer life consists of either writing or thinking about writing. ~ Eugene Ionesco

I find myself thinking about writing  all the time. But i’m not actually writing at this present moment. Am I on vacation – or not a writer? I need to ask myself this question – today.

  1. It is a blessing for me Corinne. Whenever I am stressed or anxious, I try to think about writing. It diverts the mind and eases stress.

    If there are no deadlines, one can carefully control the thoughts and take a vacation at will.

    1. Thanks, Alka. Yes, writing has been my way of letting steam out too! But I must begin to write more.

  2. If am not writing, I am thinking. Even if I don’t actually write, the thinking process actually helps me in getting some angst out of my system.

  3. This is so true. I ask myself this question too. I think about writing all the time! But don’t spend much time writing. I guess when not writing, the mind is sorting out things that finally when we do write, it flows. 🙂

  4. True.

  5. Hi Corrine,
    I was at Best Buy the other day and I almost purchased software called ” Dragon” that types the words you say onto your computer screen. Sometimes the slowness of my typing can’t keep up with my thoughts so maybe it would be easier to just say what I’m thinking and skip typing altogether.

    Take Care.
