Decided to write another blog post for October ~ mostly because most everything else I wrote today landed in my virtual wastebasket. Some days are like that. I’ve spent hours agonizing on a description only to discover that it doesn’t really matter what kind of plant is growing on the hillside or what kind of caterpillar wears a coat of brown and black. My character is on a different path; there are no plants on the hillside. No caterpillars either.
Perhaps our own abandoned paths and outdated maps serve the same purpose. I like to think so.
