Westward Bound

Filed under: Kids and Life,The Writing Life — jenny @ 5:21 pm

For the next few weeks, Suspense Your Disbelief is going to take a bit of a departure. Literally.

By the end of the month, we’ll be back for some very exciting Made It Moments, emerging writer Karyne Corum’s final Citizen’s Police Academy post, and possibly even some Big News on the writing front.

But right now, I’m headed west. As some of you may remember from last summer, I have family living on the west coast, and this year, instead of facing the trials of flying (kids who want to get out at 40,000 feet, planes re-routed without informing the passengers so that when we’re still at 40,000 feet an hour after we were supposed to have landed, I become convinced that everyone in the cockpit has died and we’re all going down as soon as the fuel runs out…you get the idea) we are going to drive.

We’re taking a nice, long 10 days about it, and hoping to really see some high points of the country. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long, long time. My not-so-secret hope is that the next time we do, I have the promise of a book in hand, so I can stop at independent bookstores along the way and say hello.

But for now, I’ve got my family, a 3 “room” tent for camping nights, and some pretty fantastic looking lodges booked. I’ll be checking in as often as possible and letting everybody know what it’s like to drive cross country with a couple of tots in tow, a husband who’s extremely happy with his new GPS equipped Android phone (I think that’s what it’s called)…and a dream.

Oh. And no DVD player.
