map of me.

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.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
