IWSG: Getting my Writing Time Back

This week marks the end of our B&B season. I've waved good bye to our last clients, locked the doors, and let out a big sigh. I'm always a bit sad when the season ends, no more meeting and chatting with interesting people. No more getting up at 6:30am to bring them breakfast, no more washing tons of towels and bed sheets. No more ironing duvet covers, pillow covers, and fitted sheets.... or waiting tirelessly for clients to arrive who are almost always late and never call ahead ....

Yeah, did I say sad?

My bad.

I meant....

and maybe a bit of.....

But what this really means is that I'll be doing a lot more of this >>>>


I hope you all manage to find the time to write, sometimes it comes in waves, for me that means high tide every 6 months. The trick is, making the best of the time you do get for writing. 

Happy writing everyone and see you all soon on the blogosphere!

Thank you to everyone in the IWSG. I'm posting away from home and have limited internet connection, but I'll be visiting everyone when I get back tomorrow! 


  1. Enjoy writing once more after you are done hopping around with glee lol

  2. Glad you're all done and get back to writing now.

  3. More time for writing is always good! I hope you have a lot of fun with it.

  4. Ha, ha, love the drawings! Happy writing!

  5. Happy blogging! I've missed your cartoons! :)

  6. You ecstatic in your drawing! Love it.

  7. Welcome back! So glad you get a break and can just be yourself for a bit.

  8. Hi Elise - hope the B&B season was good .. sounds as though there are characters there, with some interesting conversations - good luck getting back to this writing routine ... love the cartoons - cheers Hilary

  9. I bet some of your guests end up as characters in your writing!

    1. Only the naughty ones... which is a problem because most of them have been so lovely!

  10. Your clients sow the seeds of future stories in your unconscious, and your writing will be the richer for it. Good to see you back ... and your front, too. :-)

  11. Welcome back, Elise! Glad the season was good and has fed your imagination for new material. Have a super and relaxing October.

  12. Yay for you!
    I wonder if you have any interesting guest stories to share on your blog? (Hint, hint.)

  13. Yay!! I've missed you. (though I have been just as neglectful of my blog- life happens, we have to roll with it.)

  14. Back to writing! Yay!
    ...and drawing too! I love your illustrations, they're always fun!

  15. I think it's really cool that you're an entomologist that owns a B&B in France. That's like a character fit for a romantic comedy that I need to write.

  16. Congrats on surviving the season! Good luck with your writing time. I wish I had time for writing, but I'll have to wait until mine frees up.

  17. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to your home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at

  18. I can only imagine how much work a B&B is. Good thing it has a season, so you can look forward to the end as you enjoy your guests.
