--Just waiting on the cover for Years of Stone to hit that magic "publish" button. Wrote about some things I learned about the formatting part of self-publishing, mostly stubbornness and a little fantasy about Russell Crowe. I know the conversion to Kindle is just ahead. As is the need to get the 'marketing plan' down. Now. I also did write 560 words.
--Signed up to be a sponsor for the next Round of ROW80 and have read 4 others in my quest to read 10 a week. I learn so much from the other writers participating -- that's YOU, if you're reading this!
--Still have one more week to read 3 research books for Rivers of Stone. But just before bed, I find myself wanting a few more pages of Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom. I kid you not. This hero balances baby day care with stabbing demons with a plastic mini-toy. Can I blame stress? Also reading a chapter from Cherry-Gerrard's book, The Worst Journey in the World, about a winter hike on Ross Island near Terror Mountain (great name, yes?) in minus 70 degree conditions. Snow. Breath frozen on the face. Perseverance.
|Fort Nisqually with fireweed (Linda 2014)|
Maybe a little more on Macchu Picchu . . . or Scotland. Or maybe Fort Nisqually right here in Washington. A friend gave me some fabulous photos she just took (I haven't been there yet) at this living history site of a Hudson's Bay Company fort. Perfect for Rivers of Stone.
OK. Stream of consciousness. But that's my check-in for Weds. More to come on Sunday. And how is YOUR week going?
