Letters from Camp: Homesick!

So I gotta say, visiting this other camp sure has been fun, seems they do a lot of partying around here, but boy does it make me homesick for Camp NaNo!  I miss my wonderful top bunk, and my great cabin mate StoryCoat!  She always has a ready smile and creative ideas when the juices aren’t flowing!  I want my little writing cubby back.

some of the mischief we get into!

The only thing making it worthwhile is time spent with some great new friends! (Ok, maybe they are not so new and maybe they are even the whole reason why I am away from camp NaNo, and just maybe they are even family!)

What about you? Have you had any excursions from camp? Do you find yourself homesick when you step away from camp for a little while?

Letters from Camp: Gorgeous Grandma Day! What?!?

Back in 2011, in a hotel lobby in Rochester, on one of many trips to the Mayo Clinic for my wife!

I don’t have a whole lot for ya today! I am out and about, with a Camp field trip, visiting another camp! (shhh, its a secret, not really though).  So I thought I would share a great holiday with you, Gorgeous Grandma Day! Why may you ask?  Well, the answer is simple, cause I have an amazingly epic grams, who, just my luck (or maybe that is curse), is also my mom!

What about you?  Are you going to celebrate this holiday?  Say hi to your grams, or remember her with a recipe that was passed down, or write her a letter!  What are you going to do?

On the road

So today’s post comes to you from on the road!  We can’t be writers if we don’t live and explore the world.  That is what I am off doing today.  (Well ok, I am shopping for shoes for my sisters wedding, but an adventure is an adventure.)

So what about you?  Do you find time in your busy life to head out and explore the world?  Do you enjoy writing on the go?
