I truly suck at the waiting game (which means the last profession on earth I should undertake is 'author'. B and I are going nuts waiting for the final word on the house being sold here in SA. It just makes forward planning almost impossible. Both of us are planners by nature. Sigh. wait and see does not work for me.
Anyway - for a writer (not a farmer) what is lowest hassle alternative Bush, forest, or rough grassland (I think the last myself - less fire worry, but more wind.)
