Island Hopping

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted in a clear month! We’ve been in Scotland – the Hebrides, to be specific; North Uist. There are a couple of reasons for my not posting. The reasons are related. At first they will seem counterintuitive. Firstly, writing makes me happy. And I’ve been happy. I haven’t been writing blogs because my happiness needle is flicking towards the red. And as this is a holiday blog, rather than a work blog, I have allowed myself to not write it, when I didn’t want to.

I didn’t stop writing, however – rather, I have been writing fiction. Which I do when I’m happy.

But writing fiction makes me stressed, because although I love writing, the feelings around it – before it, usually – are terrible. And so I feel bad, hence the blog!

No. Kidding. Just trying to be entertaining! I’m just writing to say that I may blog, and I may not, depending on the fiction I write, which I am prioritising right now. Unfortunately, that means you miss out on the best part of the trip! I have included select pictures, and will probably add more. Some of these are from Skye, where we have arrived freshly today.

The Hebrides is wonderful; a place of changing, bountiful landscapes, a newly framed picture every minute with a new wind, a new sky. Andrew’s having a great time searching for otters.
