My friend Allan asked me this question the other day while we were at brunch:
“If you had all the money and time you needed, and you had traveled around the world for a few years to see whatever you wanted to see, what would you do with your life?”
My eyes widened and I told him I needed to think about it. This question required serious pondering.
I came home and whipped out my morning pages journal. Immediately a book series came to mind. This is not exactly a leap since I already have two books in a series out there in the world.
Ya, I’m okay with that. This series expanded by leaps and bounds as I fantasized about it in my morning pages. I came up with not one or two titles but twenty-freaking-two titles.
I also saw myself writing this series in my swanky ocean side home, sipping coffee and wearing yoga pants.
She loves the yoga pants.
She sure does.
Dear reader, I strongly encourage you to ask yourself this same question. What would you do if you had all the money and time you needed, and you’d already spent a few years to see whatever you wanted to see in the world?
It’s a great and powerful exercise. I dare you. I double dog dare you.
