When I was little, I remember this awesome birthday party at my best friend’s house. Sunset distorted long shadows along the grass, along the sides of the brick duplexes, and the car I hid behind, as I waited quietly, heart pounding ferociously. We were playing a game of hide and seek. With glow sticks. I was the last girl standing. I remember running down the long street, passing shiny cars and trying not to look back. I remember every single girl at that party chasing me.
I still screamed until my legs gave out.
This month’s IWSG question asks: If you could use a wish to help you write just one scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be?
I’m sort of writing a scene just like it in my book, only my characters are on a wild goose chase at the mercy of a homeless old man who doesn’t give information away for free. Lessons are always taught.
If I had one wish to make this scene perfect, I’d blink myself to the location. A real star trek moment. I’ve been to the real location. It’s been awhile though. I’d like to go again if only for a weekend, but flights aren’t cheap, hotel stays aren’t free and it’s my busy time of year at work.
What’s a girl to do?
Thank goodness I have google maps. Thank goodness I have YouTube. I’ll hopefully get down to Texas this fall.
I’ve got my fingers crossed.
What about you?
What’s you one fast dream that could make one moment today, this week go just right?
