Have you ever seen the Rocky Mountains? I was fortunate to work for a pharmaceutical company and traveled to the majority of the lower forty-eight states during trade shows. I enjoyed several trips to Denver where I viewed the snow covered peaks even if the time of year happened to be in the middle of summer. On one occasion, I drove to Colorado Springs and saw Pikes Peak, among others. I think back with fondness to a time when I was able to view these peaceful locations.
Now that I am an author, my genres focus mainly on Sci-fi, Fantasy, and Action Adventure. I often use social media during my daily writing, and when marketing, my use of social media increases tenfold.
I often think of those serene views of the Colorado Rockies while losing my connection to Facebook, Twitter and the like, to take a short respite from the fast pace world of the internet and the non-stop action in my novels themselves. We should take time from our busy lives, whether it is centered in a large metropolitan area or a single keyboard and desk in your home.
