Israel

I am sitting at my friend’s apartment in New York, about to take a bus to Newark airport, about to get on a flight to Israel! Excited, nervous, worried about not working on my novel for 10 whole days. (And regretful that I haven’t posted on my blog for this whole month – trip prep is my excuse!) My mentor, and others who know me well, or have experience as writers themselves, told me to take the vacation. Give myself a break, and when I get back, I’ll have new eyes. There was one chapter in particular I’ve been stuck on. Perhaps the time away is the perfect solution.

  1. Distance often provides a fresh perspective. When you come back to your novel I'm sure you'll find some interesting things. Try reading it as a member of your target audience, rather than the author, and take notes on things you wish the author had done.I'm looking forward to hearing all about Israel! 🙂
