Go on a day trip with me and come back a changed person with new insights which will fire your imagination, lead you on a new road to self discovery, and expand your mind into a zone of higher awareness. I cannot help that you will come back an ambulatory zombie and spend a day recovering though. In the end your writing will improve.

Sounds interesting. I don't understand though, are you going to be Ganduluf, the all knowing wizard, and drag Bilbo Baggins, the formal, un-knowing hobbit on an adventure that will make his writing better?

So... you are going to watch Lord of the Rings too?

Metaphorically, yes.

Ummm... No. But, many of my suggested destinations are evocative of the imagery and power conjured by the texts. Not merely evocative, but downright overpowering, elusive, challenging, fantastical...

This sounds like taking a hallucinogenic drug.

Actually, a field trip is a good idea. It gets you away from classroom walls / office cubicals. For example, during the development of MetalGearSolid2, Hideo Kojima scheduled a trip to a nuclear power plant, so as to give the designer a feel for how that stuff works in the real world. Ignore the fact that nobody actually went, but its a nice idea to go and learn about what you''ll some day be writing about, for any genre or medium.

In response to krez:
Pity... A two hour movie might provide two hours of enjoyment and some good conversation and maybe a little inspiration. A twenty hour trip with bishop_pass is a journey of self discovery and adventure providing memories which will shine like a beacon amongst the ordinary for the rest of your life...

Forget the movie! If you go with bishop_pass, you will live the movie. Why would you need to see it?


Drizzt is a little more in tune with the potentials...

Hallucinogenic drugs are infusions into your body. Adventures are infusions of your body and mind into the unknown...

Exactly right. Experience is the real thing. And stepping out to the limits is where you really discover how things play out.

I promise that my field trips are a little less academic and a lot more evocative of a serious displacement in time or space.
