I love flying, but it’s not something I get to do a whole lot of. I love starting the day in one place and ending up somewhere different. I love watching people at the airport and having to sit in those uncomfortable chairs while you wait. I even love the exhausted jet lag feeling you get after. Maybe I love all these things because they’re different. Different than what I do all day long which is take care of toddlers, change diapers, and clean up messes.
Oddly enough the things I love about flying are also what I love about writing. I love starting in one place and ending up somewhere completely different. I’m a pantster. I love getting to explore characters and do something or go somewhere different each day. Writing is my mini-vacation.
