Every writer needs a little quiet time, particularly after traveling hard and heavy - but I'm not certain all writers find it . Currently we are hidden in a writer's studio above City Lights Bookstore. Tucked away quiet literally in a warm, inviting place full of light and grace.
Thank you to City Lights Chris for making us feel so sincerely Welcomed. We are looking forward to spending more time with you, interviewing staff and readers tomorrow morning on The State of the Book for radio programs.
For the record, this is a beautiful town. As picturesque in the mountains as they get. The kind of thing that calls to the soul of a writer to put down the words. Pen to paper, or rock to wall - makes no nevermind. The fact is, some places breed story like nobody's business and Sylva is one of those places that just invites you to take a deep breath, wander around, amble a little down the sidewalk, and capture a dreamy character on page in the making.
Shellie did just that today by working on her upcoming work as I toyed around with radio equipment and ideas for the new show. She also updated her personal blog with a rather intimate story from the road and you can find it at her own personal blog linked from All Things Southen tomorrow!
Right now, the rain is playing itself out through the night as I write these words. I just wanted you to know how much we appreciate each and everyone of you following the tour along whether your meeting us on the road, keeping up on Twitter and Facebook, or simply riding along in spirit. It matters to us so much that you are out there as we carve our way across the states and around rock slides collecting (and gracious me - TELLING) story after story, mile after mile.
Blessings and Sweet dreams from Your Writers On the Road!
River and Shellie
