The suggested topic for today is: May I tell you something about myself?
Okay, here goes...
I am seldom satisfied. That's such a terrible thing to admit, but it's true. I suffer from grass-is-greener syndrome and pretty much always have. This doesn't always have to be a bad thing. It means that I'm not content to settle on mediocre. In my writing, for instance, it means that I will likely fiddle with my story over and over again before even considering querying the thing. That only becomes a bad thing if I take it too far and never end up sending my WiP out into the world.
On our trip to Scotland, I found myself constantly wishing I lived somewhere so beautiful, so rich in history, and so inspirational. Red Deer, Alberta is hardly what I'd call any of those things. Truth be told, I don't feel like I've ever really lived anywhere that feels that way. And I want to. I'm not about to pick up and relocate to the Highlands of Scotland (though I wish I could), but I'm still hoping that someday I find a place that feels mostly right, that feels like it's where I'm meant to be.
And gosh darn it, I really wish it was this place:
