We are back in civilization for an hour or two to do laundry. It comes to every camper and hiker! So here's my chance to catch up. Yes, as a writer!
Since our hikes have started typically by 7:15 or 7:30 a.m., we've been done and in camp by mid-afternoon. That's enough time to do some writing, and so far I have written every day, I think at least 1000 words. The new novel is up to 59,237 words as of this writing, and keeping the daily momentum means it's kind of coming together. I do think there will be a lot of moving scenes around--I'm envisioning a lot of notecards to rearrange on a big wall.
Meanwhile, here is proof I've been writing:
|Outside when conditions allow.|
|When the mosquitoes are too bad, I move into my BiL/SiL's camper|
Mornings are spent soaking up the soul-healing beauty of the Sierra Nevada.
|Little Lakes Valley, Rock Creek|
|The beauty of the ancient trees|
|Table Mountain, above Bishop Creek. |
|Treasure Lake, S. Fork Bishop Creek|
|Three happy hikers|
