Just got home from a couple days of camping! It was fun, although there was a fire ban on the entire time, which means we couldn’t have any fire of any kind (which kind of puts a damper on camping). Nevertheless, we did a lot of walking, did a bit of canoeing, and had some time to enjoy the outdoors. Plus, our dog got to spend full days outside with two other dogs, so he was in paradise!
Okay, I am terrible at taking pictures…
but I did snap a few nice scenery shots of the beautiful lake!

Camping doesn’t inspireme to write, but it always makes me crave a good writing session. I’m currently working on some fairly major revisions on the manuscript I was querying (you always think it’s done until you send it out to the world. Then the ideas begin creeping back into your mind again!), so now I’ve got a few days off from work to rest up, run errands, read my book, and write.
Welcome to August everyone!

    I get totally inspired by being outdoors… Even the pictures you've posted make me yearn for some forestiness.
    Good luck with your revisions. I'm right there with you.
    (Except I haven't queried my draft at all yet…)

    I know…it's such a natural state of being, I guess.

    Good luck with your own revisions! It's better to get them done before querying, though…I've already submitted to so many agents that I can't query to once I've revised! Ugh. Hopefully you have good success with finishing your manuscript first, and then having awesome results with the querying

  3. Looks like fun. Nothing like nature to clear your mind and get you writing 🙂
