Dispatch from the Writing Tent

I’m going to have to take down my writing tent in six days and I’m already well aware of time leaking away from me. Today I’ve had trouble focusing, though a lot can be accomplished in six days, because I’m thinking of all I want and need to do once I get home.

I need to make changes in my life. Big changes. To fix some things that are broken.

I shouldn’t be thinking about this stuff now, but I can’t help it. Life doesn’t come to a halt when you’re away… it’s running on ahead and in six days I’ll have to find a way to catch up.

In the meantime, I’m working on a new chapter inspired by being up here, I may have been stalked by a giant owl and/or a bear or possibly a cougar last night, and a delicious cupcake arrived on my doorstep around noon and was devoured without restraint by one o’clock. Real life feels far, far away.

  1. I always envy those who have gotten published. I have been working at this for a year and I have gotten nowhere. I know my poetry will only be self-published but my children’s books on the other hand have a real chance. Any advice??
