So, I’m not here. I mean at my desk, writing this post. I am long gone, to Ecuador with my family for vacation. That means that if there is a July Scriva meeting, I will miss it.  I’m a little sad, now, writing this, imagining all the fun and stimulating conversation that I’ll miss. But by the time I’m gone, really gone, it probably won’t cross my mind. And that’s OK.  I think it’s a good idea to take a small break from most things once in a while, even things you might love like coffee and cocktails, running and facebook.  For me that includes writing – and even critique.

I can love writing and critique group meetings, like I can love parenting and my kids, and still benefit from a break. Most of the year, I’m writing regularly and critiquing regularly (and parenting constantly).  And all three of these give me joy and help me grow.  But a break, a new experience, and a fresh perspective can help keep regularity from turning into a rut.

So dear Scrivas, I’ll miss you, but I’ll be back. And I hope better than ever.

Scriva Liz
