Writing about Writing - Days 15

15. Midway question! Tell us about a writer you admire, whether professional or not!

I admire any and everyone who has the creativity, patience, tenacity and temerity to commit their novels* to paper/hard drive and then spend the necessary time and effort to get those paper/screen versions to match the vision that inspired them to write their story in the first place.

* Sorry short story writers, but the short is more easily committed and therefore requires less investment.  Note, I'm not saying "easily" in that it is easy to do well.

Peru Panoramas

Two panoramas: one from Ollantaytambo and the other from Machu Picchu.  These are patched together shots with the edges left rough because, while I was thinking of taking a panorama, I didn't go about it very scientifically. Hopefully the quality isn't too bad, but I tried to save them as gif to keep a transparent background. As usual, click to enlarge.

The entry that corresponds to these photos is here.

And yes, clarentine , this means I'm getting out the external hard-drive with the photos on it and will be sending them to you soon to shed some light on your building questions. :P
