writing challenges...sigh

So I'm noticing that I'm sitting here this morning (fast turning into afternoon) reading other people's blogs, checking out the news, and thinking about writing. Oh, and I'm inside, which is a tragedy in this beautiful area. (Shall I mention again that I am house-sitting in Capitol Reef National Park, which is divine and gorgeous and in the hot height of summer, which does not bode well for hiking but bodes very well indeed for lolling around by the river?)

My cat, however (Bella, see her picture on the right somewhere), is totally thrilled to have me here with her, and she's been showing off her great skills as a hunter of toys and dustballs in the house this morning. And I'm listening to Diana Krall, and I'm enjoying this very moment of being in this place, lucky me!

So. I'm having an issue dragging myself outside just yet. But I will soon enough!

Now, to attend to the writing.... I do have a call for submissions that I want to check out, so that's encouraging. Off I go, writing away. No procrastination for me, uh-uh.

I LOVE Capitol Reef! My favorite park in Utah! And I envy the hell out of you. :))

Ah, someone who knows Capitol Reef! Not many do, which is actually kind of nice--one of my self-imposed goals in life is keeping it relatively secret--no need to become the next Zion or Bryce. But I'm really glad you know it and love it, as I clearly adore it myself.

Thanks for envying me--it helps remind me that everything's going okay even though I don't actually have a home at the moment...At least I get to stay in cool places while I'm home-searching!

no lolling in river for you...not until you write 25 pages of screenplay...we must become famous and wealthy and attend sundance in trendy winter clothing and...oh never mind...go loll on the river for me!

I did! I lolled on the river! It was great! And I did think about the screenplay...I was stirring the creative juices...ahem. Perhaps not quite the same as actually writing. But a start....
