Taking a Break from Writing (sort of)

It’s summertime, and the livin’ is easy!  It’s the time when regular routines are broken by intentional fun and games.  So last week, our granddaughter, Anna, came to visit and all things writerly took a break (sort of).


Imagine being ready to pop


climbing all the way to the top


thinking of words that like to rhyme


or loving books all the time;


having energy to spare


aiming for the ducks right there


knowing when to put your foot down


or raise it way up off the ground;


learning how to lay it on thick


or be a flower ready to pick.


Imagine being slightly silly enough


to say  Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious….. and stuff!

I can’t imagine doing anything better than what I did last week, except maybe crafting a character from the antics of Anna someday! I love my job, and now I feel so refreshed I’m ready to get back to work!



Hey READERS, I would love to hear from you.

Is your MIND FULL of old thoughts or new?

  1. Nice, Linda. I like knowing when to put your foot down in the context of the photo. Context is, after all, king. On a personal note, I have been encouraged to consider casting my story about dissociation as an adult novel rather than YA. Any thought on that?

    • Thanks, Carol. Truly was a fun week, and as you are well aware, we never know when or how we might use character traits from those we love. It’s one of the most interesting parts of writing, I think.
