I’m back, again, in New York, and thus end my whirlwind travels for the summer.
Only 6 days after returning from Italy, I headed out again to visit my family in the Pacific Northwest. It was everything a summer vacation should be: warm, sunny, and relaxing (see gallery below for evidence).
Now it’s time to buckle down and get to work.
I have a number of projects lined up for the coming months:
1. Finish polishing my current project
2. Educate myself about astronomy via several Coursera classes
3. Brainstorm, outline, and begin drafting my next project (which will draw on the aforementioned classes)
Bon Voyage, Readers! Today I’m jetting off to the lovely Pacific Northwest to spend some time with my family.
I’m looking forward to:
Lazy, sunny days at my parents’ house on Vashon Island
Long walks with the family puppy
Hanging out with my two adorable nieces
Spending a few days eating, hiking, and kayaking on Lummi Island
Camping and hiking at Mount Rainier
And, of course, sneaking in writing time whenever possible
This trip is good timing, as I think I’ve finally got my query letter and synopsis for ABSENT in good shape and am read to start sending them out. Having a distraction to keep me from obsessing over responses (positive, negative, or lack thereof) will no doubt be a Good Thing.
