This is a really beautiful way of looking at the writing process! I’m off to the blue sky and open ocean tonight. 🙂
May the stars guide you and the wind be at your back!

I write short stories, (buy my e-books below!) talk about the writing process and take the odd photograph. I'm on Twitter @kilbo.
I live in the Seattle area with my kids and work as a freelance customer experience analyst and writer.
