If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be? Would you write or read there, or do something else?
There are many places I’d like to visit before I die (Montana, Wyoming, the Pacific Northwest, the Carolinas, Tennessee, New England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada (Wheel of Fortune gives away a trip to the Canadian Rockies that looks so awesome). For years I’ve longed to take a long cruise to Alaska (though it’d probably turn out that I’m sea sick). I’d love to take a girls’ road trip with my mom and sisters to visit our aunt and cousins in Arizona. All I lack are the resources and energy. (I'm in dire need of some energy.) I am hoping my middle sister will be able to join my mom and me when we visit my baby sister in Colorado for a few days next month.
But…right this minute… if I had the resources, I’d love a week all by myself in a lovely, roomy inn with delicious room service and wonderful views. I’d read and sleep and nibble and watch movies to my heart's content and then read and watch movies and sleep and nibble some more. And maybe check in with my characters and see if they're speaking to me yet. If not, I'd do some writing exercises and find inspiration from pictures I've clipped or pinned (love Pinterest!) But mostly, I'd refill my well by reading and sleeping and nibbling and watching movies.
So...if you could go anywhere, where would you go, who would you see, what you do there?
