We're back from our vacation and I'm refreshed! I ran into many writing opportunities while down there. Though the one I made the most use of was when we were in Sea World. My family and I just sat down and waited for the Shamu show to start. There were people filling the stadium. Parents bringing treats and drinks for their kids. Salesmen offering over-priced cotton candy. And of course the whale circling the tank.
Soon the show started. The theme was about sticking with your dreams. With the inspiring words running through the microphone, magical music pumping in the background, and my imagination running wild, a story was born.
I dug out my journal and pen and wrote furiously. I missed almost the whole show, but I've walked away with something better-- the premise of my next work.
Even while on vacation, a writer is never fully on vacation. For if we were, we'd miss out on our best opportunities.
