Night out with the girls...

There is nothing more treasured than time spent with some of your favorite people. With all the traveling back and forth I've done this summer, I feel like I haven't spent enough time with all my favorite people.
But then I get together with my Girls and it's like we were just out to dinner the night before. I need that time. It recharges me more than anything.

What recharges you?

The thing about writing is...

Here's the thing about writing: When you are a writer, you're writing every time you think about the book. You don't need to be at the computer, or with pen in hand. When you brainstorm, critique, or ponder your characters, you're writing.
It's taken me a long time to get my head around that concept. I joke that I'm "slacker writer" because my page count doesn't match the higher counts of my critique partners. But it's a joke, because even if I'm not actively writing, I'm pondering. And that pondering helps the pages flow better when I do sit down.

How about you? What is something you love to do, that you don't always have as much time for as you'd like?
