After reading the Writing 101 assignment about maps, I spent hours following roads in Google Maps street view looking for inspiration. I think I covered nine states and parts of four countries and relived years of my life. But inspiration never happened.
Maybe this post is the answer… because all I could think of for this map-inspired piece was writing pretty much that same exact post — plus a map. But that would be cheating. Right?
Just in case anyone thinks it’s not cheating, here is a map to go with love across the ocean.
But I still thought I should have something new. I tried all day but couldn’t clear my head. I thought of places I’ve been… lots of places… amazing places. But my brain just felt tired and jumbled.
So I came up with a rather loose interpretation of the original task. I created my own map of what I know most intimately.
