I was determined to keep to my writing schedule, and I’m finding everyone is pretty sanguine about my disappearing for an hour or two. Added benefits: new facts crept into my writing thanks to unexpected finds at the inn where we stayed (mostly earthenware and metal from the 200-year old midden); the amazing birds – we’ve seen peregrines, osprey, herons, eagles, hawks, and buzzards -; as well as more food scenes, since we have been eating very well. Plus, time to talk with The Chemist gave me a great insight on a particular element in the story.
It’s tough to write on the road, though. This time made harder by the Inn’s quixotic approach to WIFI (apparently there was some, once), and the very dramatic weather (tornado watches, massive storms) – actually, those went into the story too.
How do you stick to a creative schedule when you are on the road?
