So when is the last time you escaped? The reason I ask is because it’s been on my mind a bit, calculating how much time I actually have to write between relationships, responsibilities, being an international sex symbol, and I realize how little time I spend on writing. This isn’t a post to try to excuse myself, I know that no matter what everyone has the same amount of time in a day, and probably a bazillion (approx.) more things going on than I do so don’t panic, there is no Simple Plan playing while I write this and my black nail polish is securely tucked away in my adolescence.
It’s a new year, and with a new year comes new possibilities and more importantly new vacation time. I decided after my epiphany that while I can spare at the very least 1-2 hours writing time a day I want to do something drastic, dramatic and hell, being honest,
kind of completely self-indulgent.
I want to escape.
I figure maybe Virginia Woolf was right, and I’m of course taking her in her most literal sense, and also…I’m a dude…but hey maybe I need a room of my own. Maybe I should go through with renting out a shitty hotel room for a week, use up some of that vacation time, shut down all forms of social media and just spend a week, locked away, with a word processor, plenty of alcohol, and a fervent need to finish a book.
I think I can do it, but maybe it’s a stupid idea, or maybe it’s not and I just want to be talked out of it. What do you all think? Have you ever wanted to escape, and how would you do it? Is it probably not a good idea to have “plenty of alcohol” listed but not food? Anyway hope your week is going well and happy scribbling!
