First RocketSquid Challenge Completed!
RocketSquids was to write a lens (article or web page) having to do with Summer Travel. In the beginning I actually picked a vacation spot I have fond memories of, but I had a hard time remembering all that we did, as I was so young. I started doing some research and found all these other great things that you can also do there. My little one got sick soon after I accepted the quest and we are currently having a home built, which is behind on the estimated closing by at least two weeks. I started to get overwhelmed and felt like I was treating this as an assignment rather than my usually enjoyable writing. I really started to think about all the trips my family had taken and then realized my funnest memories were those of being in the car together as a family. My mother is deathly afraid of heights and with how expensive it is for a family of five to take an airplane, we never flew for vacations. Summer Trips Driving as a Family were always something I looked forward to because it was a special time that family used to bond. I also found some great road trip products that I would even like to look at purchasing! Although, we have been very blessed in my own family now that we are able to take most trips by plane, but ever time we do go on drive somewhere I like to do those things my parents did with us with my little one and will continue to do it with all our future children as well. Once I decided that was what I would write my lens about everything just fell into place. It just is more proof that I need to stick to writing about something that is interesting, personal, or important to me.
