I definitely am an introvert, so that kind of lifestyle boasts a tiny bit of appeal to me. But I'm also the most social introvert I know.
I need people. I love people. I would be lost on an island writing all day long. I would rather work at Walmart and never publish another book than have to have all the time in the world but to live isolated from others. So, when you ask me to fill out this week's Finish the Sentence writing prompt about what I would take if I were stranded on a deserted island, I start to sweat a little.
I'm classified as an INFJ (which explains my passion for writing AND my compassion for the oppressed, believe it or not). And my introvert score tops the chart. I don't have an extroverted cell in my little body. But the idea of being totally isolated on a deserted island is terrifying. So, I'm taking the cop-out. If I could go to a deserted island - even with unlimited wi-fi and a power source so I could write as many books a year as my heart desired - I'd still say "No, thanks."
You're sending me to a deserted island and I get to choose anything I want to take with me? All right. I'm bringing a boat ... one that will take me home to my family and friends (and all the distractions to my writing with them) STAT!
Random Fact #18: I went to Hawaii when I was 11 or so and got swarmed by a school of fish while snorkeling. I didn't get hurt (but I did get my toes bit, and I'm terrified of fish even today!)
About Those Books: My first full-length novel, The Beloved Daughter, topped the amazon charts this week in the Christian suspense category. Have you checked it out yet?
