Ever since the release of my second book, Here to Stay, I’ve had people asking me whether I’m more like Blake, the character who’s finally coming home and just wants to settle down, or Autumn, the girl who is on the brink of living her dream and moving to Paris.
I’m both of them. :)
Blake and Autumn are the perfect picture of my own conflicting desires to live close to home and loved ones and really settle down…but also to pick up and move somewhere totally random and different and fun. I adore traveling. But I also really like home. I appreciate routine. But I am prone to restlessness.
So as I wrote Here to Stay, it was definitely an experience in acknowledging my own internal waffling. And frankly, I have no idea which desire may end up tugging harder in the future. But such is life…we don’t always know what comes next.
BUT…it’s still entertaining to imagine sometimes. :) So I thought instead of rambling at length today, it might be fun to chat about the places we’d like to be “here to stay.” So tell me…
If you could move anywhere in the world, where would you move?
Or are you happy right where you’re at?
What makes a place be a “here to stay” kind of place for you?
