Before the Lights Go Out... ROW80 Update

That's how it feels... leaving the country and being without Internet. Like I'm entering a dark room. It's kind of sad how dependent I've become on my Internet. 

Not only do I love connecting with writers and readers, I use social media as a lifeline. Every 2-3 years, I am new to a location and have to start over. But my online friends come with me wherever I go. Make a move from Maryland to California... no problem. My friends are just a password away.

Now, I'm heading out of the country. It comes at a perfect time for me to focus for a week on my family. But it's also going to give me some uninterrupted writing time... late at night and early in the morning in a dark hotel room, but I'm hoping my Muse won't mind (after all, I am taking her to a beautiful location).

My only A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80) goals over the next week...

Write. Write. Write. 
Rejuvenate by Focusing on Family.

That's it. Pure and simple.

For fun, I'll share a picture of my writing space the other day. Lots more of this scenery to come.


And don't forget to check out my sponsor post this coming Monday, 8/5. I'll reply to comments when I get back in town. Wishing everyone a wonderful week!

I know how you feel. I panic at the thought, but I know I could be so productive if I took a break sometimes.

Have fun on your trip!! I can't wait to hear about it. :)

Enjoy your time abroad, although I do have to say that most other countries do have Internet :-) I was able to teach my online class from China and Israel. Pretty amazing when you think about it!
