I’m sitting on the 2nd floor of the Margaret Murie building at the University of Alaska Fairbanks watching the first snow fall on the green lawns of west ridge. I’m trying to develop a routine of writing here every Monday and Wednesday morning this year. So far I’m having mixed results – the last two weeks have been wild and fun, but not productive writing-wise.
I like the space though–on a clear day I can see all the way to the Alaska Range–and I like the idea of a routine. Maybe it’ll settle on me as the fall wears on.
Today’s project was finishing some copyedits and minor revisions for a forthcoming publication. It feels weird to write that, but I have to say I like it.

We received our first snowfall this morning! About an inch and and half and still going. Oh boy. Earliest I’ve seen yet. Happy winter?!
I guess so! That last one didn’t stick, but the forecast here calls for a couple inches tomorrow. I’m not ready!
Excited about your upcoming publication. I hope you’ll still write your short stories more often too? You have inspired me to take time to write more.
Thanks Michael! I’m going to try and keep up with the blog a little more, but I always say that. Dang grad school snatches all my writing energy!
