Writer update!

 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.

The beauty of the ancient trees
