How Do you Make Your Summer Special?

I'm hoping to run a series of posts on things to do this summer. But, in order to make this a success I need your help? I want to know if you have any activities, places you enjoy, or things that you do in the summer months. I would especially like to know about where you like to write in sunny weather. Maybe you go to the beach, or sit by the side of a swimming pool. Maybe your kids are at home and you read to them as you write. Whatever it is, I'd love to hear from you.

Writer's Block- How Do You Deal With It?

You may have noticed that, despite all good intentions, I've written very little here since starting this blog. Part of the reason for this is that I've been suffering from a case of writer's block. In the past when I've had writer's block I've sat down and written something using a starter or idea from a book. This has then good my ideas flowing again. Unfortunatly, this time, it doesn't really seem to have worked. You will be glad to know that I have come up with the solution to my problem however- talk to someone who is passionate about writing. It's very hard to not be inspired to write when you sit down with someone who a) enjoys writing and b) wants to encourage you to write as well. So, be assured, I will be doing more writing in the future. You may not see the fruits here straight away (as I will be writing offline as well as on), but hopefully you'll spot some of my writing here and there. I'll be setting up a page on this blog soon where you'll be able to see what writing I've been doing other than on my own personal blogs.

Do you ever suffer from writer's block? What strategies do you use to overcome it?

Meet Me On Monday #12

 Hosted by Never Growing Old

1.  What is your favorite yogurt flavor?

My favourite fruit flavoured yoghurt is cherry, but I also love toffee flavour. Not sure which I prefer.

2.  Ankle or knee socks? and on the same theme, white socks or coloured??
Ankle. I like socks with the days of the week on them ;)

3.  How is the weather right now?
Sunny with cloudy patches.

4.  Are you a fast typer?
Yes. I can't remember how many words a minute, but I did a typing test a while ago and they told me that I was faster than needed to be a typing secretary.

5.  Red or White Wine?
Red, with meals only

I post this meme on a different blog every time. See my profile to trace previous posts.
