Which stories are the best? Those where you find yourself wishing the world it brings you to is real, or those that are so real you're thankful it's just a story?
I want to live vicariously through my writing. I realized that tonight. I don't want to do anything drastic in my writing of course.
I want to pretend I live in a mansion, and my closest friends are the little people that live under the floor boards and mine out the agates from under the house.
I want to travel the world as a waitress on a cruise line, meeting new people and unattached and focused on whoever and whatever God sets before me.
I want to create worlds different from the one I live in, without the troubles I face, but new troubles invented that I can - from this objective seat - see the exact course that must be taken.
But who would want to read something like that? How would I not get tired of writing that?
I don't know the answers to these questions. I just need to write.
