And here are the cardinal pictures I’d taken at Cindy’s house during the writing retreat. You should have seen me! Sitting *under* a high top table, camera sticking out a slightly open window, while Mona and Cynthia typed away (Cindy directly over me!)
But you see, Wildlife photography is a big part of my writing process. Not only does it give me the hands-on research I need in the manuscript, but when I get stuck, really stuck, sitting quietly with the camera in the woods (or in this case, under a table!) is a way to move away from the words, quiet my mind, and to really listen to what my main character has to say.
