Thanks so much to Susan Rich for hosting me this week at The Alchemist’s Kitchen blog, where I offer 3 tips and prompts for how to find room to write during the summer months with all its temptations.

It’s very easy to be lazy in the summertime, especially when it comes to getting any serious writing done — but actually, the fact that we’re outdoors more than usual actually opens up opportunities: Even if we’re not sitting inside typing, being out in the world can feed our writing, simply by offering up so many different sensory experiences. If we look, listen, and think like writers, we can do more than we imagined possible in the relaxing days of summer.

Hope you enjoy the tips and prompts — and have a great week of writing!

  1. Beautifully said, Judy! Truly. Thank you!

  2. Thanks for approaching this with such good ideas for keeping our writing alive and well in the summertime, Midge. No matter where, we can always tuck a tiny notebook and half-pencil in our pocket, except maybe those teeny weeny bikinis. In that case, memorize the geometry of water on skin.
