Four months after Gramp’s mysterious death, Nate helps out at Gram’s garage sale. An eerie feeling, as if Gramps were reaching beyond the grave to send Nate a message, leads Nate to a box full of clues. A missing plane. A secret to keep. A map highlighting the route where Gramps died and the message, “Shipment #35-Gold.” Nate and his best friend, Simon, are convinced that Gramps was on a treasure hunt when he died. They’re just as convinced that Gram’s shifty next door neighbour, Fortier, is after the gold too. Nate and Simon sneak away on a Greyhound bus for the small town of Paradise where Nate is sure treasure awaits. Can they find the gold before Fortier gets his thieving hands on a treasure that rightfully belongs to Gramps?

A genie grants me three writing-related wishes?  Bazinga!  What I wouldn’t do for that!

Wish #1
In draft mode, I often get mired in small details.  When every line is a tortured attempt at perfection, it’s hard to tap into a well of creativity and gain momentum.  Brain science tells me that I’m stuck in left-brain, logical thinking when I should be harnessing my right-brain’s free flowing energy.  So genie, grant me my first wish:  Give me a magical switch so I can override the left side and let my right side take over.  The switch would be handy during revisions, too, when I want the left side to dominate and do what it does so well: nitpick and fine tune each passage.

Wish #2
Show, don’t tell.  It’s one of writing’s primary rules.  I thought I was pretty good at showing until a few skilled editors ‘showed’ me that I wasn’t at the beginning of my writing career. Telling can look an awful lot like showing and I’m more skilled at recognizing the difference now, but it sure would be handy to have a ‘show, don’t tell’ alarm that sounds whenever I go astray.

Wish #3
This next wish is pure indulgence, but it would fulfill a life-long dream.  I’ve always wanted to write my way around the world, somehow melding exploration and adventure into stories about the journey. Problem is, the older I get, the more exacting my requirements.  No hostels, please. Only four star hotels. No four-stop connecting flights. I’m done with that. Direct flights only.  Of course, I’d need the latest technological gear, too. You get the idea, genie.  Pamper me and make this all happen.
