This year I’m at a cabin with no wifi, so my posts will be sporadic. I’m hoping to borrow the coffee shop’s wifi, as I have in the past, but we’ll see. (Update: I’m using the coffee shop’s wifi, all right.)
Anyway: I’m at Minnedosa for the week. I arrived at the cabin Sunday night, got unpacked, and fell into bed.
Here’s what I’m hoping to accomplish this week:
- write at least 10,000 words in “Dried Flowers”, my current novella/novel project. Stretch goal: hit 50,000 words (right now it’s sitting at 35,000 and a bit).
- get some astrophotography done. The forecast calls for a couple of clear nights later in the week. I’m hoping to get the Milky Way and—if the sun should oblige—some aurora.
- read some books. I brought The Book of the New Sun, Catch-22, The Secrets of Judo, and Fugitive Telemetry, and I’ve got a few others saved on my phone if those aren’t enough. (In fairness, when I arrived I had 6 chapters left in BotNS and one chapter in FT, so those are kind of a gimme.)
- ride my bike
- go kayaking
Here’s to a good week!
