I reckon if we had a 50-hour day I might catch up by year 2019. I am so far behind I feel as if I’m mired in a mud hole that’s thicker’n molasses and wading my way through in slow mo. So, any time now, I’m going to shift into high gear and leap into February.
But, looking back, I did a accomplish a few things this fall. If you care to take a gander, check out The Invitation, a photo-essay for Saltscapes Magazine that explores where my love of paddling originated.
I also did a piece titled The Undiscovered Maritimes for Subaru’s Six Star Magazine and a piece about Quirky camping in Fundy National Park with the Puffins (along with snorkeling with Salmon) for Travel2Next.
And, today, LocalXpress posted The lure of the night, putting the awe in photography. My friends Bill Curry and Brenda Tate kindly provided some photos which are stunning. I’m going to take Brenda’s tips to heart and also hope Bill will be giving a workshop soon so I can figure out how to do what these two are doing.
Oh yeah. I’m writing a book. Remember The July Project? Well, ahem, that’s become the foundation for a book which, at this point in time, has a working title, Finding myself in my own back yard … the treasures and pleasures of Southwest Nova Scotia. It will be published by Pottersfield Press later this year and I’m thrilled beyond measure.
Finally, I will be giving a couple of workshop in February. One on writing Memoir, in Clare NS on Feb. 18, and a 2-day workshop in Saint John, NB on Creative Non-fiction (Hop aboard the narrative train!) Feb. 24/25. More on those in a couple of days.
