Today, I was rearing to get going on my chores so that I could get back to my Doorways edits, but as I was driving home, I got a phone call from a friend.
He invited me and my brother to go lobster fishing with him.
Since I’ve never been on the open ocean before, but really wanted to, I accepted, even if I was a little sad to miss another day’s worth of edits.
My regrets soon faded though, when I was on the road, riding on the back of a pickup. Something about the fresh air, the wind through my hair just got my thoughts churning out some interesting things to know about my Doorways world.
Oh those things, the power-structure was the most valuable. It’s not something that I have to go into so much in Doorways, but after that, the more I know, the better.
The only mildly annoying thing about all this is the fact that I had to get sea-sick. At least I managed to keep the contents of my stomach in my stomach, but it wasn’t a fun experience.
Still, I get the feeling I’ll get myself out there again the first opportunity I get. A bit (OK a lot) of queasiness isn’t going to scare me away from some awesome inspiration.
Ever find yourself doing something that makes you sick, but that inspires you at the same time?
