Sometimes it is great to have a day which I can devote to writing. In fact sometimes this writing racket can become all consuming and I donít want to do anything else. It can be quite annoying when there are distractions when I just want to write. Perhaps you know the feeling.

I woke on Saturday wishing I could spend all day writing. However I had to go down the street to buy a few essentials and do something that wouldnít wait until Monday. Really, I wasnít feeling very energetic and a day sitting in front of the computer would have been nice. I was annoyed there were distractions that would take me away from writing. I decided to go straight after breakfast, take care of my errands and then come home and write.

Once I was out and about I got my first errand done quickly. I saw a friend and we chatted for a while. It was nice to have run into her. Then I went to the supermarket.

As nothing I had bought was perishable I decided to walk to a thrift shop I havenít been to for a while. This took me past a park, a pleasant stroll in an area of Moreton Bay fig trees. The dry leaves crunched under my feet and I felt invigorated by the smell. I noticed a Christmas display of Santa and his six white boomers across the other side of the river. I was glad I had my trusty camera in my bag.

Christmas Display Author's own photo


After taking some shots of the display and the park I continued on my way. I bought a couple of nice tops at the thrift shop and chatted to the assistant. On my way back to my car I realised one of my favourite cafes would be open. I like to chat to the proprietor, a friendly woman.

I popped in for a coffee and a shortbread biscuit. You always get a free treat with your coffee and it changes from week to week. We had a chat and I enjoyed my coffee. I also read one of the magazines available and made some notes about the health benefits of Nature. That could be useful for another Hub Garden article sometime.

You probably think I am going to say I had wasted my morning on various activities when I could have been writing. However, I felt energised by my time away from the computer. I didnít feel lethargic as I had before I left home. Chatting with people, walking in the park, photographing the Christmas display and reading the coffee shop magazine all gave me new ideas and inspiration for writing. It was time well spent and not a waste of time at all.
