Today’s question: If you could pick one place in the world to sit and write your next story, where would it be and why?

…So…anywhere? Right? Literally anywhere? I’m just checking. If time and space and reality are no object, I’m picking Narnia. For preference, somewhere near the river Beruna, kind of soft and mossy with flowers tucked into the green and a big old oak to settle under. The definite possibility of a badger or a faun coming by to say good morning and interrupt my writing only adds to my longing to be there. As to why, it’s NARNIA. I can’t think of anywhere more inspiring.

If we’re letting SE dream but also trying to keep her grounded in reality, I would pick sitting and writing a few pages (cough, an entire book, cough) in New Zealand. The setting of the Shire, if I can’t have the actual Shire. I’d plop myself right down where they had the Party Tree in the movie and refuse to move for at least the next three months. This would probably not surprise my family, I think they’d be ready to bring me food and water.

This is the dream. Never take this away from me.

I’ll go, S.E., but I won’t get much writing done. I’ll be too busy exploring. All best to you!

Gwen Gardner

Haha! The Shire would be perfect. And you’d have to stay in Bilbo’s hobbit hole, of course.


Oooh, the Shire. The movie certainly made me eager to visit New Zealand. Now if I could only get over my fear of flying long (and short) distances.

Tyrean Martinson

Oh wow. Yes, I would love to write in Narnia or the Shire, but I think … well, I would pick specifically Cair Paravel or Bag End. Those both sound like lovely places to write.


I’d love to write in the shire or as close as I could get. hehehe

I like the way you think! Bon voyage!

I think I would get distracted by all the talking lions and witches in Narnia! Hobbit hole sounds like something that would be right up my alley, though. They sound like they have good snacks.

Good One!!! I never even thought of the shire! Perfect. Can I come?
