I had a great day yesterday visiting with my Sister and her husband and friends in Napa Valley. Tasting some fantastic wines and meeting some incredibly devoted individuals. It is humbling how dedicated they are to the craft of wine making — I can only hope to be so dedicated to writing the best stories I possibly can.
Speaking of stories, I have 3 short stories — one is potentially the basis for a novel — I am working on right now. I really need to just get down to finishing one, and I think it will be “The Visitor.”
I am looking forward to a long drive today to Avila Beach on the Central Coast of California, since driving always seems to give me the time to think out different plot lines, characters, etc. I have a very good sense of where “The Visitor” is going as a story, but I need to decide on how to conclude it. Once I have that figured out, I can finish it.
