Week in Review

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.

Faulkner Park, August 2009

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.

And now, here are this week’s writing links.

  2. Finally made it! Better late than never, I guess. (I made that up. No, really. I did. 😀 😀 😀 ) I love your new Friday Week in Review graphic and your photo idea is fantastic. I’m going to look forward to these, for sure. Especially since you’ve also included a wonderful selection of links. (These round-up posts are SO helpful to me!) Thanks for the gorgeous photo and for letting us see your inspiration for Driscoll Lake. Sharing! 🙂 ❤

  3. Ooooh! I love seeing the real life inspiration for the book. The area is gorgeous. And what a great photo from an 8 megapixel camera.

    Great links, Joan. And I love the new look and direction of these posts.

  4. As soon as I saw that photo (which is gorgeous, BTW), I thought of the lake in Unclear Purposes. Isn’t it cool how places we’ve visited create a basis for some of our work? I frequently do that when writing.
    Happy Friday, Joan!
