On Vacation...HMS Sofa

On vacation!

Here's a repost from 19 May 2009 of an idea for if you need to take a staycation (back in the days when I used to post to the blog so often that a brief paragraph was sometimes all I needed!):

HMS Sofa

I discovered Anne and May's blog through Nathan Bransford (also check out his link to the 24-hour air travel satellite video on YouTube), and learned that my sister and I are not the only ones that create cruise ships on sofas!

(Discovering a new author blog that I like is veery dangerous, since it adds to my Wishlist/To Be Read pile. The only trouble is reading the comments on the various posts; there're a lot of people out there for whom logical fallacy is a way of life. Back to the cruise ships...)

In creating the HMS Sofa, you collect all the items you will need for an afternoon's sail (a cat or two, your favorite drink, some knitting, a huge stack of books, puzzles and magazines, etc.) and veg for a few hours. No getting up! except to replenish your drink or maybe catch an errant ball of wool before the cat does.

I've been doing a lot of this lately. Although I have officially started the new WIP, I haven't gotten anywhere on query revision for the completed MS. I've just been sitting around a lot. I've had a cold for the past week, though, and so haven't entirely begrudged this downtime. *sniffle*

You can pretend that this is your view:

What would you take with you on a couch cruise?
