I am currently about 5k into my latest WIP, and I decided to go out this past Sunday to do some field research. Translation: I was bored stiff and didn't want to sit in the house. So, I took Small Child to Lake Louisa State Park. Although, if you ask him, we went to see "forest" and "lake," because it is not officially a park unless it has a playground.
He was fascinated.
So was I. See this tree? See those branches? They go back to the ground and burrow underneath, kindof like it's clawing it's way across the path. I just know it has to make an appearance in my WIP.
Bonus points if you can tell me what kind of tree it is, because I'd really like to know.
And look at this. Can you picture a rambling mansion somewhere in there? Cause I can.
Can you spot the alligator?
So, that was my weekend. Much fun was had, and I'd love to go back and explore some more. Did you guys do anything fun this past weekend? Where do you go when you're bored and need a muse?
