My friend Bridgie takes a breather to enjoy the view in the Picos de Europa in Cantabria, Spain.  Our group took the teleférico up and hiked all around in the crisp air, enjoying views such as this:

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #56: Seascapes and/or Lakeshore

Killary Harbour is Ireland’s only fjord, which technically is neither a sea nor a lake, but it still makes for a cool-looking waterscape.  The fjord was made by a glacier on its way to the Atlantic ocean.  Even with the clouds it was a lovely sight.  There was even a pair of swans floating around, and some decorative landscaping spelling “Fáilte” or “welcome.”

You can find more seascapes at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #55 – Dreamy

Ireland has many dreamy locations, particularly on the beautiful western coast.  The day we went to Lough Annascaul in the Dingle Peninsula, the misty weather gave it a dream-like quality.

You can find more dreamy scenes at the original Lens-Artist challenge.  You can also check out some dreamy sea lions from the Galápagos from when the Weekly Photo Challenge had the same theme.

Camp NaNo Poll: Best place for fanfiction?

This July I am participating in Camp Nano, with the goal of writing for 500 minutes.  I’m doing okay so far with devoting time to writing, but I’ve only written two scenes!  Ugh! I think this is because I didn’t have a strong outline like I usually do, so I’m kind of floundering.  I’m a plotter, not a pantser!

campnanoI’ve started on a new project this month, and surprising to me, I’m back to writing fanfiction!  I used to write a lot of Cardcaptor Sakura and Star Wars fanfics back in high school and college, but I haven’t done any in over 10 years now.

Consequently, I’m kind of out of the loop on where to post fanfiction online.  I used to use fanfiction.net (my stuff is still there), but maybe that’s not as popular anymore?  Of course, I do have this blog as well, but I don’t usually post my writing here, and I’m especially hesitant to post fanfics because of the dubious legalities.

So, fellow writers, what do you think?
