Become a patron and help me finish writing my novel!

20190107-novelwriting

Hey all,

I’m back to working on the novel I started writing four years ago, about the first road trip I took across the country in 2014. I’ve spent the last couple days digitizing my journals written during my transits between LA, Big Sur, Yosemite, and San Francisco. This whole process has been a lesson of how I should finish projects when I start them, because as I delay bringing this narrative to a close, several other narratives have been backed up in the process. I imagine I have two other whole novels to write once this one is complete. In the meantime, I have to trust that when I began writing this novel in 2015, I didn’t quite know how to write it and it has taken me the last four years of experiences to figure out how to give all of its characters and the social movements contained within, a proper voice to uplift the nation they take place in. Your patience and patronage is much appreciated as this year is hopefully the year that marks the first part of the Deerfield Legend receiving a conclusion.

You can share glimpses of this writing process with me on my Patreon campaign, and support my writing in the process. $1 a month and you’ll have access to Travel By Haiku.

Wish me luck, and in the meantime here are some haikus and musings to read over from my journal dated, 11/23/2014 in Yosemite Valley, CA:

Western desert

purity in quiet

sand bottom of earth

 

Mountain enchantment

cliffs hanging over valleys

supernatural sky and earth

 

The Yukon

the gold standard

American destiny 

 

Fire spirit    Ice spirit    Mountain spirit

Wind Spirit    Road spirit    Lake spirit

Water spirit     Bear Spirit    Cliff spirit

Earth spirit    Wolf spirit    Nature spirit

The Yosemite has all these things….
