Beginnings, "starts" are always challenging. I remember, in my twenties, when I was about to begin a planned trip to live abroad, in Europe, for a few years, I was getting a little nervous. My travelling companion had dropped out and I had to do this on my own or give up the dream of a lifetime - all twenty years of it - Gulp!
A rather wise co-worker said, "Why are you worried? You'll just be six hours from home." That clinched it. I could do this, because I had a lifeline, a plane ticket back, if all else failed.
It didn't fail. My two years in Europe turned out to be fantastic!!
But that was then and this is now. I have lots of ideas, all the time, however, I have realized only a few. Yes, I have done the usual - finished university, had a career, married, bought a house, raised children, had a business, but now, I think I have to do something else.
I think I have to write. I need a starter for this. Yes, I have completed a nanowrimo and written 50,000 words, but it isn't a book. It's a patchwork story of my life. I need to write a novel, a piece of fiction or I have to go on an adventure and write about it.
I need an ignition point, a starter.
The pictures? Some recent adventures. These, though, were short trips. I need an odyssey.
Have an adventurous day!!
