My parents flew to Colorado from Georgia. Then, we crossed Wyoming, drove a bit in Utah and found ourselves in the welcoming arms of family in Pocatello, Idaho.

The break from the Internet resulted primarily in my efforts to downsize my stuff. The laptop seemed like a luxury when I had to pack toys, board books and major stuff for my toddler.
My iPhone turned into a camera as I had limited phone service and Internet. Every time I realized my cousins could hook me up to their Wi-Fi, it was time for bed.
Instead of the Internet:
- I watched my son play with his older cousins.
- I talked with family members.
- I learned more about my cousins.
- I visited with my aunt and uncle and my mom and dad.
I thought it was a good trade off and had fun doing it. I returned to all my writing projects refreshed.
Just living is nice.
Did you take a break this summer? How did it impact your writing.
