I sat all alone on a mountainside for four days and here are the top five things I learned:
ONE: That hottie ski instructor at the swanky resort in the winter is the same unemployed bum sitting on the condo step smoking a joint in the summer. Not so hot.
TWO: I live in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
THREE: When I sit down and force myself to write for 8 hours straight, nothing but trash comes from my pen for the last two and a half hours. Unsalvageable, unredeemable trash. Good to know.
FOUR: On the flip side, those first five and a half hours produce fairly decent stuff. Turns out, I have some pretty cool ideas when my mind is left alone to wander....completely uninterrupted and free from mommy-guilt. Who knew?
FIVE: I love my blogging friends. I love checking in on you, seeing what you are learning and thinking. I love hearing from you in the comments section. There was no Internet access at my mountain condo and I missed you guys!
