I had this moment last night just before falling asleep that got me really excited. It’s this feeling I get sometimes when my brain is entering into the alpha or gamma or whatever state it is that’s between being awake and being asleep. I feel like I have super powers in this state. It’s like everything I can dream up happens.
Last night was simple, but oh so magnificent in my mind. It went like this:
Me driving a long ways listening to good music, some books on tape and my phone buried where I can’t get it. I have coffee and snacks and it’s just me. Business and family know that I’m MIA for a bit of time.
Then I end up at some beach town (this is till to be determined). I get a room at a quaint hotel and set up. I buy food. I buy wine. I choose the movies I will watch at night and most of all, I scout out the locations nearby of where I will write. Just write.
I have my laptop, my fingers and my brain that’s about to explode with story after story. I write early in the morning, in the middle of the day or even stay up late. And when I’m not writing, I stroll the town, eat good food, watch movies and read books.
And at the end of these… oh, let’s say 4 days… Mike meets me and I share my favorite locations with him and we have 2 more amazing days as I celebrate my creative purge.
