Even as we close in on leaving Merida (just 2 days left before we hop on that plane back to snowy Spokane), I'm still spending about 2 hours a day on plotting,research, and character development. I've never worked this much on plotting ahead of writing, and am eager to get those 3x5 cards up on my corkboard back home.
Today we walked about 2.5 miles to the artisan's market, hoping to find those crafty gifts for friends back home. As we strolled through the Central Plaza, a troupe of dancers and a puppet master entertained the Sunday crowd.

READING THIS WEEK: Yasmine Galenorn’s appealing Legend of the Jade Dragon, single mother of two with witchy tendencies faces disaster with a cursed jade figurine; Libby Howard’s cozy mystery, The Tell All (Locust Point Mystery); and Amy Gamet’s Hero Force (3 book set).
Just a thought about the Russians: My three blogs are hosted by Blogger. One of the features they give us is the ability to look at traffic sources and audience in a global map. I do look at these occasionally, so earlier this week, I was shocked to see 346 hits (views) from Russia on one of my blogs. Why? Even today, I got 126 new hits from Russia. So I'm wondering if this is an anomaly, a glitch in Blogger's tracking program, OR something else. I know technology continues to change . . . but why on earth would my little blog pick up so many views? Anyone else check where their readers/visitors are coming from?
That's it for this week. The week ahead will be busy, intense, full of change. I most likely will not check in on Weds as we'll be heading for the airport about 6am and arriving home (in a different time zone +2 hours) at about 11 pm. So, have a great week and know that I'm thinking about you!
