Consequently, I take a break at midday to go outside. I play a sport called platform tennis two to three times a week. This allows me to enjoy an interesting activity and spend time with friends. Other days, I take walks. This gets me in touch with nature. Since I live close to the mountains in Colorado, I can enjoy nature with all its sights, sounds and aromas.
In the afternoon I do promotional work, often engaging with other writers or doing events. Afternoon and evening are also time for family activities.
I follow this schedule unless we’re traveling to visit our grandkids. During these excursions, I put my writing aside.
For a writer I find it important to keep this balance. I enjoy the solitude of writing but also the interaction with nature and other people.
