What has your writing road trip looked like so far? Excitement? Traffic jams and detours? Where are you going next?
I think this picture probably summarizes my road trip so far:
I’m not sure how easy that is to see, but the road goes on and on and on, zigzagging and winding all along the coast. It’s a pretty slow way to go, and you can’t be in a huge hurry – people take this road so they can see things. And even though it might take awhile, you always get to wherever you’re going eventually.
…and that’s assuming you really have a specific endpoint in mind.
That’s what my writing road trip has been like so far. I know what my end point is (or what I would like it to be) but I’m not in a super huge hurry to get there. I’m taking my time, stopping to see things. I’m young, and there’s a whole world outside my window, and it would be pretty silly of me to not go out and experience that world.
Eventually I’ll get to where I’m trying to go. But for now I’m just trying to enjoy the journey.
