This particular shot was taken while at the mill near Floyd along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
With Thanksgiving yesterday (in the US), right now the duck is probably glad it’s not a turkey.
Back in early October, my wife and I were lying in bed, her scrolling through Facebook on her iPad, and me reading a (physical) book. We were having a conversation about something that had popped up on her feed, and I had been looking over when something caught my attention: the mention of R40 Live’s release date (11/20 – this coming Friday, if you’re interested). This was the “Promo” video that went with the announcement.
I saw this live, and laughed (squeed?) at seeing the celebrity cameos – especially Peter Dinklage (since MC has been on a GoT kick).
Exploring the tube… what might your character find? What about the holes, where the light is filtering in? Anyone (or anything) waiting outside them? Is there something to be illuminated by some thing at a special angle (a la Raiders)? What’s at either end of the tunnel? (And how did the character get there?)
Like most casual listeners, I discovered Oasis based on their breakout (in the US) single. But a friend of mine, after hearing that album, had gone back and gotten their first – and would regularly tell me I needed to check it out.
I finally did (a few months later). This track has made it onto 95% of my driving music mix-tape/playlists ever since.
This was taken just down the road from the hotel that housed the Viable Paradise workshop, when I went in 2012. (Follow the link for more info about VP.) I consider this one of the best weeks I spent, with regard to how I approach and understand the storytelling craft (and being a professional writer). This week is the 2015 session, and the group of students are finishing up their week on the island.
