Maine is a helluva muse for writers. At least for me and a few others.* This week alone I was able to make great strides on many fronts. I focused on our print anthology and read the last minute stories that are being included. I caught up on all my backlogged correspondence and tackled my TBR pile: the new Highsmith bio, The Time Traveler's Wife and Time Travelers Never Die (yeah, I gotta thing for century-hopping), The End Of It All, Texas Trackdown, A Fistful of Legends and The Guilt Edge to name a few. Plus, took in a Jazz show at a local club with the Charmer and fretted over a Cash Laramie short that I’m considering sending EQMM's way.
Now, I suppose I could have done it anywhere, but how can you beat this scenic shot?
Or this one.
There's a state slogan that goes, "Maine - The Way Life Should Be." To that I say, "Amen."
*Including writer, Chris Holm, who delves into the state's extraordinary hold in an upcoming 7 Questions.
