It's the first Wednesday of the month, and that means it's time for another meeting of The Insecure Writer's Support Group. Our leader Alex J. Cavanaugh has assembled another bunch of fantastic co-hosts: Gwen Gardner, Doreen McGettigan, Tyrean Martinson, Chemist Ken, and Cathrina Constantine.
Be sure to check out the IWSG website for lots of great writerly resources!
Here's the optional question for this month: If you could pick one place in the world to sit and write your next story, where would it be and why?
There are so many choices! How can I possibly decide? And once I do pick a place, how can I be sure I'd actually sit down and write rather than wander off to explore? The only way to ensure this wouldn't happen, I think, is to avoid the more touristy spots around the world. I'll have to save those for a vacation.
I think getting a cabin in the woods would be the best bet. Preferably it would have internet access and air conditioning. And a coffee pot, of course. I would also want it to be close enough to a medium sized town so I could pick up supplies as I need them. I think this would allow me enough alone time to focus on my writing while also giving me just enough down time so I don't lose my mind.
Where would you like to write your next story?
