It’s 9.00am and, as I wander around our borrowed farm, already the animals have retreated to the shade; horses under overhanging oaks, donkeys resting under river gums and the goat hiding in his shed. Only the whippets join me on my walk, determined not to miss an adventure, regardless of the heat.

With only a couple of days left of our farm-sit, I’m contemplating the idea of hitting the highway to continue our journey south to join our family for Christmas. But part of me wants to stay here in my paddock, surrounded by nature, and only emerge when this crazy week is done.

Dear Santa,

Please send our pressies to the shack at the bottom of the track in the paddock in the middle of forest out the back of the highway. There’s plenty of grass, waterways and companionship for your reindeer and your way will be lit by a million stars.

Love a romance writer in retreat

Adding to yesterday’s post, I found this article by Scott Atkinson in my Writer’s Digest Writer’s Yearbook, 2015…

It seems that this is the time of year writers take stock (if the blog posts hitting my inbox are anything to go by) – what worked in 2014, what didn’t, and how to change one’s writing habits to increase the chances of success in 2015.

Leo Babauta over at http://www.zenhabits.net suggests ‘5 Ideas to Create an Amazing 2015’ which is worth a look, and his twelve month Sea Change course is a challenge I just can’t refuse. For $10 a month I get to complete the following Sea Change modules:

1. Meditation

2. Healthy Eating

3. Decluttering

4. Exercise

5. Unprocrastination

6. Learning/studying

7. Debt reduction

8. Quitting a bad habit

9. A good start

10. Gratitude

11. Creating

12. Letting go

Somehow, methinks the Art of Failing Well and my monthly $10 expenditure may have some cosmic link…but at least I don’t have to hand over my beautiful new ‘Ring For Chocolate’ Christmas present till August😇
