Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link -- or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.
This Week's Topic:
Describe your dream writing retreat. Where would you go? Who and what would you bring?
This is a fun one. It's like a fantasy vacation for my mind!
First and foremost, I would bring absolutely no one but myself. Otherwise, I'm sure I wouldn't get any writing done...Okay. Okay. If I'm going to Hawaii in my mind, I have to bring my husband, but that's it (and he's off scuba diving while I'm writing or something).
I'd wake up every morning, really early. Grab a coffee. Dig my toes into the sand. Whip open my tiny pink netbook. And WRITE. In reality, I'd probably get all set and ready and nothing would come to me (My brain doesn't cooperate like that...rarely do the writing ideas flow when I actually have the time to write.) BUT, this is a fantasy scenario, so let's just say I write full perfect chapters every day.
Hi! I’m the author of the YA paranormal series, CHILDREN OF THE GODS.
I have two boys (ages 2 & 4) which has done wonders for my sound effect skills. I'm now an expert at missile launching & explosion noises...Also, I'm pretty decent at wielding a lightsaber and building lego ships. So be prepared for some kid blogging in between the book updates. My days are spent taking care of munchkins, writing, and running Acorn Publishing, most likely in my pajamas.
