Farming my Thoughts

Most authors have a day job. I am no exception. My day job involves creating as well. I own a hobby farm. So today instead of writing the next volume of my series or tweeting the day away, I will be wrist deep in ground, weeds and seeds. My two passions fit together perfectly. When I am working outside my mind is allowed to wander to wherever my imagination can take it. I have solved my most stubborn narrative problems in the garden. So I write in my head and when I do come in and need a rest my trusty computer is waiting for me to download everything I came up with while I was outside.
So today I will plant some carrots and weed my strawberries. Who knows what might come to my wicked mind.
