WIP Wednesday Went Fishin’

Toronto BeachesThe good thing about living in Toronto is there really is so much to do. Half the fun of living here is discovering, or rediscovering the city.

I'll bet you didn't even know that yes indeed, we do have a beach here. And the good thing about going to the beach on a Monday in the middle of May is the place is virtually empty (or at least compared to how crazy it gets in the warmer months).

Sure it was overcast, and at times a little breezy but it was a relaxing day nonetheless. I saw a house for sale that literally backs onto the beach (and will cost a cool $2.5mil for any serious buyers).

So, although my hopes of sitting in the park or on my deck overlooking the beach & writing everyday while enjoying a mocha have been dashed, I did find the perfect spot (which I refuse to share…unless you want to meet me there) for those times when I do happen to be lakeside with my notebook in hand.

Pair the above with a little hike, a trip to the movies and a drive to Kingston for the best wood fired pizza (which we watched the chef prepare from our front row seat at the bar), my WIPs haven't seen any progress in the past few days (and I seem to have fallen off the blog wagon for a week, as well).

And I'll be honest with you. It wasn't all that difficult to let go of it all and relax for a while. I'm still not sure whether that's a good or bad thing, but I'm about to find out as as I open up my WIP for the first time in 5 days…..

  1. I think that taking a break from your WIPs is a therapeutic process. It should be a regular activity, but I like to give my projects and characters a couple days off once in a while to percolate in the creative ether. It also gives me a chance to catch up on things I may have neglected as well. As for beaches in Toronto, yeah, been to one. We have them in Buffalo, NY too (where I grew up) or at least in the general vicinity. Been a long time since I’ve been in Toronto tho. Need to get back!
