Puerto Rico + Wedding = Mojo for My Next Book

Tomorrow morning Liz and I will be heading off to Puerto Rico to attend a wedding, and while we’re there, we figured, let’s take an extra day, so we’ll be hanging out until Tuesday.

And for that I say, thank god.

For all sorts of reasons it’s been a long, rough stretch these last several months, and I’m ready for a break. I’m not even sure what hotel we’re staying in or where on the island it is.

For all sorts of reasons it’s been a long, rough stretch these last several months, and I’m ready for a break. I’m not even sure what hotel we’re staying in or where on the island it is. All I know is that I want to be someplace that isn’t here, have a steady flow of umbrella drinks and then I’ll figure out the rest.

The break comes at a good time for me writing-wise as well. I’ve been hitting a really good stride lately, and I need to think a few plot points out. I’ve found that getting away can really jump-start me creatively, and help the ideas flow. In fact, way back in 2001, when Liz and I were on a cruise to the Carribean, we were in the gym, looking out over the water as I bopped away on the eliptical machine, when I had a major a-ha moment, one that had a major impact on Finders Keepers and really helped nail the ending to the book.

So yes indeed, I’m looking forward to Puerto Rico.

Let the chill begin …
