Picture Time! :)

It finally let me upload pictures! Here's the one I made in Photoshop of Khaladin:

OK, so his mane and tail aren't as copper as I see them in my imagination. I can't find the right shades on Photoshop and I'm too impatient to try. This is close enough for me. :)

I've been working my tail off in Khaladin (see picture below) and have written 21,000 words, but I don't think I'm going to make it to 60K. No big deal....60K is long for middle grade, so I'm not too bummed.

So, here's the story with the picture. That's me (duh!) writing on my laptop, but WHY IN THE WORLD am I writing in the middle of the Grand Canyon overlooking the Colorado River? Simple: these two natural landmarks are in my story. There's a great chase through the canyon and maybe even a river rescue. It's going to be so much fun!

Isn't it windy there this time of year? You should probably wear a jacket when you go there to write.

Yeah, but I like to be chilly. I say that and I'm sitting here in a heavy turtle neck sweater. I'm an oxymoron. Maybe you could just leave the 'oxy' part off! :)
