Sometimes this wanderlust is a curse, because writing a novel takes patience and focus. My mind wants to jump around to different topics and tackle new writing challenges. Once I have an idea, I have to force myself to stay with it until the end. To truly savor the journey, I can't be wanting to take another one.
The person susceptible to wanderlust is not so much addicted to movement as committed to transformation.
Writing allows me to give characters troubles I might be facing or contemplating. Through their journey, I can have my own. Blog posts and journal entries also give me tools to answering life's toughest questions.
Do you have wanderlust?
Only 3 days left for A to Z. I can't wait to see what others come up with for X, Y, Z. Check out some amazing bloggers here.
And a special shout-out to my baby girl, Madeleine Elizabeth. She is seven today. I am grateful to call myself her mom and help her on this journey we call life.
