THE REAL DEAL: One Moms Journey To Having It All
I'm with you!I either want one of those beach houses with thatched roofs on the water, where you have to walk across a bridge to get to the land. I also want it completely stocked so I don't have to go to the mainland unless I want to, which I won't. LOLOr I want a cabin the woods--in Fall (so I can take walks to a lake) would be super nice. And it is completely stocked so I don't have to drive into town. :)
I took a trip to Ireland last summer and my friends and I climbed to an area right on the ocean we probably weren't allowed to go...but it was so secluded. The most Eastern point of Europe. I would love to go back there and write.
I'll take the cabin! I would love to vacation at the beach, but for writing, it's all about a cozy space. I would even take a few days at the little bed and breakfast in our town. This way, I could pop in and see my family whenever I wanted, but then I'd disappear back to my room to write.
Last spring, Katie G. and I took a writing retreat to Galena, IL. I know, it doesn't sound as romantic as a beach house or cabin in the northwoods, but to this history geek's heart, it was PERFECT. A presidential home to tour, an amazing county historical museum, and nearly every house in the town is on the National Historic Register. I wrote 13K words that weekend and got to tour museums till my little heart overflowed. :) I'd so do that trip again!
I love Gettysburg, PA. I've watched many sunsets from Little Round Top, and found mountains of inspiration there.I would have to say Gettysburg...or maybe a beach somewhere. I love the sound of the surf.
Oh man, that is a tough choice! But since snow is in the forecast, that beach is sounding pretty good right now. :)
Loree, how I'd love to sit on Little Round Top with you, travel back in time, and write. As long as it was a warm, dry day and we had plenty of munchies, I'd be happy.I'm a real homebody and have written my stories in my cozy home office. However, I think I'd be content to write at a cabin up in the Sierras in the summer when the wildflowers are in full bloom, one overlooking an Alpine lake.
I'd love to hear your thoughts too!
