Writing on a Mountain
So I’m sitting up on Sugar Mountain looking for inspiration. The wife and I came up for the weekend, and I stayed for the rest of the week to try to finish the draft of my latest novel.
We had a good time traipsing about over the weekend. The highlight was hiking to the overlook at Linville Falls. I say hiking, but it was only about a mile and a half round trip, which is about as much hiking as I care to do. Walking on flat sidewalks is fine, but climbing rock stairs is for the birds. The view was worth it though.
Hopefully this picture will inspire me to work hard on my draft and maybe even salvage my NaNoWriMo attempt. Fast writing just isn’t my thing, and I’m behind the eight ball for NaNo again this year. Today I wrote just under 5000 words. I’m usually lucky to break 500 in a day, so it was a good writing day. Of course, I’m almost out of candy, so it’s not looking good for the rest of the week.
