Hey, y’all. It’s Friday again. (Yeah!) That means it’s time for another weekly wrap up. I’m changing the format a little this week. Since I decided to add a Thursday Thoughts post, I’ll make Fridays simpler.
I’ve created a custom graphic for my Friday posts. But since I love to take photographs, especially of the beautiful outdoors, I’ll throw one in each week and include the story behind it.
I pulled this photo from my archives. I took it with my first digital camera, a little 8 megapixel Sanyo back in 2009. This is a nearby park with a walking/jogging trail surrounding the lake.
Sound familiar? If you’ve read Unclear Purposes you know the opening scene of Chapter One is set in a similar location.
This is the place I envisioned when I wrote the first chapter. I’ve walked the lakeside trail many times and am happy to report I’ve never had an encounter like my characters, Christine and Vince. If you look at the pine trees on the left, the trail makes a little curve there. In my mind, it’s the spot where Christine discovers the body.
