The snow has passed us by
Now it's April and I can't believe that I'm planning to go to the Orkneys in just a few short days! I'm bracing myself for cold and dark days there, but hoping for sun if no warmth. Just the journey there will be an adventure. Two flights, a car and a ferry that docks in the middle of the night... and then we'll be there! It's unreal to me still.
I follow Neil Gaiman's blog. That and his twitter feed were the ways he convinced me to give his novels another shot. (I hated Stardust.... with a passion... but I love American Gods and Anansi's Boys) Anyhow, his recent blog entry indicated he was in the Highlands writing. I thought that was cool, since that's what I'll be doing soon, too!
I don't know that I'll be able to blog every day while I'm travelling this time. It's possible, but I won't have a computer with me, so you may have to wait until I get back at the end of April and have time to process my trip before you get the story from me.
