Every month a question will be posed that may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Remember, the question is optional. You can write about anything that relates to your writing journey.
Let's give a warm welcome to our co-hosts:
Gwen Gardner, Doreen McGettigan, Tyrean Martinson, Chemist Ken, and Cathrina Constantiner!
This month's question is: If you could pick one place in the world to sit and write your next story, where would it be and why?
Some place indoors with comfortable AC and/or heating, with plenty of food on hand, and a view either of the the ocean or the mountains.
***The possible article I talked about last month has been written and... accepted!! It's quite the deal. It will be published in Destination USVI, a magazine that is published annually and distributed to visitors as they board their plane on certain airlines at certain stateside airports!!!! You can take a gander at what the magazine(s) look like here.
I'll let you know when it actually gets into print.
***Hurricane Dorian became a cat 1 right over St. Thomas and St. John. Lucky for my family and friends it did very little damage and everyone is fine. It was the surprise of it turning north and intensifying so quickly - in a matter of hours - that had people scrambling. Not that they weren't prepared, they were. But when you're expecting 50 to 60 mph winds and get 80 to 90 (one gust was officially recorded at 111 mph) it was... well a surprise.
As for the Bahamas and the East Coast. My heart aches. What a horrible storm. The Bahamas will never be the same. And I bet some of their sandy cays have disappeared completely. Give help where/when/how you can to all those suffering. I know a lot of IWSG and blogging friends live along the coast... Difficult times.
Today I'm thankful for the mundane.
Here's a picture of an Orb spider that's taken up residence in our yard.
Haven't seen on in several years.
What are you thankful for? Got a dream location to write in? Are you safe from Dorian?
