Today we are going to play a game. It’s called, “Where would you rather be?” It’s very simple. You just comment (or email me) with the name of the place (and the activity if you keep it PG-13) of where you would rather be and what you would rather be doing.
This is really a test. If you can’t think of anything or anywhere off the top of your head then you are in the right place and doing the right thing for your life at this moment. Well done! If you start making typos left and right because you can’t get the names of places and activities out fast enough—well, you might not be doing what you most want to be doing.
Personally, I was torn. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to be in a cliffside home watching rain fall while I wrote the great American script, great American novel and great American business proposal (which would win me millions of dollars), or if I should try for a locale like this place:
Here I would bask in the beauty of the surroundings and the balmy breezes—while writing the great American script, great American novel and great American business proposal (which would win me millions of dollars.
Well, at least the activity is the same no matter where I go. So, that’s a step along the right path. Of course, I tend to concentrate more while basking in gloom rather than basking in sun-kissed waves (rather bad sign for a writing career in Los Angeles, I suppose), so Bali might have to wait for a bit. Perhaps, a trip to Bali for the second book could be in order.
