School holidays are in full swing in Adelaide, so we decided to go interstate for our holidays. Crossing the border into Victoria our family went to the Grampians - Halls Gap. Our family loves camping and I find being outdoors rather calming when I write. So while the two older kids went hiking with their Dad to the Pinnacles and back I stayed back with our youngest hoping he'd have some sleep; so I sat listening to birds around us and saw a few kangaroos hopping by.
To me writing while away was still important to keep the flow going and motivation up. Even just writing 100 words a day. Over the five days I squeezed out 1000 words. I wrote about our time away just to keep words pouring out.
Also I've been working on a few articles through Hubpages and oDesk to add to the family income while working on my novel and being a stay at home mum. Anyone interested in writing and being paid have a look at oDesk its FREE to join if looking for work.
