Not what you thinking… It’s just been a few days since my birthday and as thirty six treated me so well, I thought I’d better have some more clearly defined goals for thirty seven. Since I’ve been little, grade school-ish little I mean, I’ve wallowed in a kind of self guilt about writing. So, for thirty seven I’m going to give myself a break.

Tempted. Oh. So. Tempted. If weren’t going to be away for nearly a full week sometime in November, it would almost be a no-brainer. And I’ve got a really good idea stirring in my head, too, bubbling there below the surface, brewing and cooking and ready to be plotted out into the digital pages of my word processor. I’ve even got some motivational rumblings in there, too. *grrrr* And I’m even sorta feeling up to the challenge again after skipping the last two years. Ultimately, I’ll probably skip again: time-constraints and work-pressures and running-schedules being what they are. Regrettably. But I’m tempted. Oh. So. Tempted. Someone give me a really good reason either way, and maybe it will tip the balance. Comment?

At home, we write about the every day, the observable, or the experienced in almost every word we pen, but travel writing pulls us from the ordinary, routine, or commonplace and allows us to write about these things in an unfamiliar context.read the full post ⇒
