Man, time is sneaking up on me. It’s been a scramble to try to keep up with everything in life, and that’s put me behind in everything else. It’s hard to believe that it’s already September and Insecure Writer’s Support Group day.
I’ve got insecurities a plenty. Will I frustrate people with book 3’s timeline? Will I finish MMF this year? How will my rewrites in Isto turn out?
But I haven’t really had time to focus on that lately, so I’ll just answer this month’s question.
IWSG Question of the Month: If you could pick one place in the world to sit and write your next story, where would it be and why?
To tell the truth, my choice of location has nothing to do with writing. It’s been a life long dream of mine to go to Japan. I used to talk about traveling there with my grandma. It was a childhood fantasy that never came to fruition, and I admit, it’s one of the largest regrets of my life that I’ll never overcome. Between school, work, and life, I never made that hope of mine a reality, and my grandma has since passed away.
So, if I could pick one place to go, it’d be there. I’d travel back in time and hop on a plane with my grandma. It doesn’t matter if we wound up at a shrine in the mountains or in the center of busy Tokyo. I could write anywhere. It’d be so much cooler if it were there with my grandma.
Where would you go? Would it be some place in the present? Or would you travel to the past?
