Dale gave us all the same theme to write about: a jumping-off point from which to start. She linked it to the title of her new book, of course, but it could not have been more up my alley if she tried. Maps! I could write for hours about maps - they are the quintessential symbol for location. They encompass all that there is to say and feel about place, about leaving, about getting there.

For me maps mean location - a concept that is writ large in all my writing. Without my locations, my stories would fade away.
Please visit Dale's blog: the insights into how writers see maps, and the different takes that are possible, can be quite entertaining.
