Thinking... About Thinking....

So, most of you guys know I'm part of this fun test drive thing with a Chevy Equinox called The Chevy Girls. They told us all to plan on driving around 1400 miles, and if we needed more to let them know. They gave me this shiny new car and sent me off on my way:

1400 miles in 28 days sounds like a lot.  I guess I spend way more time in my car than I thought, because I hit 1400 miles last weekend!

The thing about driving, though... is that it's where I do my thinking. I'm not sure if its the music, the fresh air, the ability to let your mind completely wander.... but I have thought up more plot twists and character arcs while driving than anything else.

My friend Kristin Halbrook is a writer and named her blog "Long Distance Drive" for that exact same reason.

If your blog was named after the place where you did YOUR thinking, what would it be called?

"Singing in the Car"

Seriously, if I'm driving somewhere, I'm singing and thinking about my plots.

I do most of my thinking in the shower, but I can't think of a name that doesn't sound inappropriate! I'm scared of what that says about me.

I think it would just be called "While I am ignoring my children teepeeing the living room"

Like lilrongal, the shower is where my muse likes to hang. How about 'writing on the steamy mirrors'? Or 'lightening bolts from the bathtub.'? Or...they digress and so do i.

Aw man, now you have to give it back? I was really hoping for an awesome Oprah ending. You get to keep the Chevy, and YOU get to keep the Chevy!

I do my best thinking when I'm cleaning the bathroom, so I'll name my blog 'Toilet Time'. :)
