Fun Writing-Related Activities

Do you find it hard to stay focused on your WIP during the summer months? I certainly do. This summer has been crazy so far and I've accepted the fact that I will need a little extra discipline to not let everything slide. Of course, there's nothing wrong with taking a break. In fact, summer can be a good time to do some different activities related to writing and reading. Here are a few things I came up with:

  • Go to a writing or book festival
  • Visit the home of a famous author in your area or vacation destination
  • Write out-of-doors at the beach or park for instance
  • Plan a trip to the setting of a favorite book
  • Do some hands-on research by traveling or visiting settings from your WIP (take photos!)
  • Try an activity one of your characters loves (if it's not your thing already)
  • Take on some physical challenges to refresh your mind and gear it up for writing later

What are your suggestions?
