I finally got my butt in the writing seat over the last week or so! The write up of my solo trip is proceeding nicely, nearly finished, and then I can get serious on the Chamberlain Guidebook that Ambrose wants me to write and the Queens River Guidebook.
The guidebooks will be short pieces meant to help people who want to explore those areas with a little more recent information than is readily available right now. After our eclipse trip into the Queens River area, we learned that the area isn’t well described in the guidebook that we learned about it from, in part because the terrain has changed and the trail has been rerouted in places. The Queens River literally changed its course between last year and this year at one of the crossings, so a short guidebook that could be updated every year might be useful.
I’m almost done with the third day of my solo trip write up. One more good weekend of work and I’ll be done with the writing. Then it’s Ambrose’s turn to do the proofreading and I’ll start with the photos. I’ll definitely have these books ready for Christmas gifts.
I just hope the air around here clears up soon. Boise has a red air quality alert going on right now, and I’m definitely feeling the effects. Everything smells like smoke, even indoors, and my eyes have been burning all day. Not conducive to focusing on writing or anything else.
But I know that I just need to get my butt in the seat and I can get it done.
