Trail(er) Dreamin'

The wind is still wuthering and shrieking and FILLING IN THE DRIVEWAY I JUST OPENED, but I'm not going to think about that right now.

There' a Marty Robbins cowboy song I like called "Trail Dreamin'." It's about riding a horse, but of course I always think about hiking, but today, I'm thinking about my little trailer. Right now, it's still huddled in the snow.

And yet, "Visions glow as I go trail dreamin'. I see a home on a blue mountain dome..."

Today, I published Bury the Hatchet in Dead Mule Swamp (Get yours at Smashwords or Amazon.) This is not only personally gratifying, but I hope it gets me one step closer to my goal of more independence. Maybe this is TMI, but at $2.99 each, I'll get about $2 for every full-price sale. Not a fortune, but there are already some dedicated Anastasia Raven fans who will be sure to buy it. And books in series are popular, if well-enough written. The other three have done well enough that I'm definitely encouraged to keep it up.

Also, today, I was offered some free-lance editing. If this works out, it could be a real breakthrough. It's for sure I can't travel much with two part-time jobs tied to this local area. And it's also for sure I can't travel without an income. More mobile, writing income is incredibly awesome!

"There'a a rainbow trail that's lined with stars, That leads to a gate with moonbeam bars..."

Can you see me here? ...in my little portable office, writing about all kinds of things, and hiking, and...

I can just imagine some daydreaming with a new trailer! Where are you headed?

The scene in the picture lends well to the dream. I wonder, is that Om on the roof of that trailer. :)
