Flying is undoubtedly one of the favourite things for LD’ers to do. It is one of the easiest things to accomplish, but sometimes it can be surprisingly difficult.
I have had the problem that whenever I fly, it’s difficult for me to rise very high. Almost always all I can manage is to get about five metres off the ground. I have had very hard times trying to get to the roofs of multi-storey buildings. However, last night I solved my problem, and the solution was very simple. What I had been trying to do was I always aimed at the point I was trying to get. Last night, when I wanted to fly to a roof of a four-storey building, I didn’t aim at the roof but instead rose high enough well before the roof. When I was a bit higher than the roof, it was easy to land there. Maybe what boosted my creativity was the fact that I had taken a cute girl along to fly with me.
Have you had similar experiences of difficulties with flying? How have you solved them (if you have)?
