On most weekdays, my time spent in a car totals around two hours. Work is 35 miles from my house, which makes it a 70 mile round trip. This is the time I want to write. It’s the time I feel like writing. But it’s the one time I cannot write.
I dream of a day when automated cars will drive me to work, and I can spend my hours in traffic getting something productive done. My mind wanders as the traffic flies by. I think of some pretty good story ideas then.
I do, however, love audiobooks. And I ONLY listen to audiobooks when I’m commuting to work. It makes me look forward to the commute almost, to see what happens next in the story. I’ve been listening to a lot of sci-fi lately, both classic and modern. Neal Stephenson has been a particular favorite of mine over the past few months.
Can you suggest some audiobooks for me to listen to? I like action, lots of it! And suspense! And cliffhangers at the ends of chapters! And lovable characters!
