Back on Track

Dear Faithful Writing Bug Followers,

As you may have noticed, I have not been a very studious blogger over the past month. I was swept up by my family, a pop-up camper and some amazing adventures. I am back now and plan to blog more consistently. I do appreciate your continued readership.

I loved every trip we went on and although I did not write or blog at the time, my experiences will definitely enhance my future writing. There were 22 of us; 10 adults and 12 children making each experience unique and memorable.

We camped at the top of Cameron Pass in Colorado where a dozen or more hummingbirds buzzed around our three feeders and even perched on our fingers. On a hike, the mist from an amazing waterfall cooled us off and provided a great backdrop for photos.

In the Medicine Bow forest in Wyoming we went sledding during the day and played with lighted Frisbees in the dark of night. At night around the campfire we all enjoyed adding a verse to our own Campfire Blues while be accompanied by my dad on guitar.

The rumble of Harley's filled Custer State Park in South Dakota a few days before the annual Sturgis motorcycle rally and I will never forget seeing five black ferrets hiding and playing in the rocks by Sylvan Lake. The nightly program at Mount Rushmore was inspirational and worth seeing.

The time away helped me recharge my batteries and now I am ready to write and blog again. My mind is filled with great intriguing characters, beautiful settings, fresh dialogue and new scenes.

What have you done recently to recharge your batteries?


p.s. My Dear Kerrie column will resume next Monday (Bill I will answer your most recent question then.)

There are lots of way to recharge our batteries, and your trip sounds like one of the great ones. On a tiny scale, I schedule a massage, and for big time recharging, I attend a writers' conference or convention (or a retreat).

You went sledding. And I see people wearing jackets and jeans. In August. I'm so jealous! We've been topping 100 since early June with no rain. But I suppose there are trade-offs - we won't have to shovel winter.

I've been reading a ton this summer trying to get refreshed and recharged! With law school starting in a few weeks, I know I won't be able to read for pleasure, let alone write for much longer!
