The past two weeks have been rough with packing, cleaning, moving, cleaning, unpacking… all the joys of leaving one house for another. My writing took a vacation with not even a phone call to tell me it was alright. Thankfully, it decided to come home to our new house once it saw the view from my reading and writing nook.
Our previous house was very small, only one bedroom with less than no storage space, but it was one block from the Gulf of Mexico. It was lovely for a while but we quickly grew out of it. This house is two bedrooms with tons of space. The view sells it, though. That view will really help me creatively – it already has since I nearly doubled my work count from before we moved.
It may help that my story is a YA tale about a city girl who is forced to move to Florida for her father’s job. I plan to use a lot of local knowledge and a bit of my science background in the story to ‘write what I know’.
