1. I live in the country on roughly twenty acres. My closest neighbors all own larger pieces of property and spend at least half of their time farming. And wouldn’t you know, they’re both writers? Both have authored some pretty impressive books that have done well. For fans of synchronicity and serendipity (Deepak Chopra wrote a book on this topic), it could be argued that this is a sign I’m on the right path.
2. I hiked a section of the Appalachian Trail some years back, where I met some of the most remarkable and alluring characters I’ve ever encountered in the real world. Usually, as an author, I have to get lost in a fantasy world of my own making to meet people with this kind of magic. But they exist in the real world if you just know where to find them. I’d like to chalk these chance encounters up to synchronicity too, and declare them the latest indicator that I’m on the right path with my fantasy writing. But I think it has more to do with the courage and willingness to leave everything behind when you walk that trail, and the college kids that are drawn to it at that sweet point in their lives where everything is possible and nothing, no hurdle is great enough to stand in their way. For anyone who has lost that sense of formidableness, I would encourage you to hike the Appalachian Trail. Admittedly, it’s not as prestigious as the Camino trail Shirley MacClaine once walked, but hey, it may be a lot more accessible for some folks.
