What I’ve accomplished

Dragon FlyWith regard to writing, not much.

I’m a bit stuck. I’ve tried to write an outline, but I’ve written less than a page. To help push me forward, I’ll give Randy Ingermanson’s Snowflake Method a try. 

I’ve also allowed another obsession to grab hold of me: photography.

My new camera can do so much, I’m having a great time figuring the thing out. The quality of the photographs are killer — once I figure out the settings. The fun part is learning which settings go best with the subject, available light, and determining composition.

I caught this dragonfly in my neighbor’s garden this evening. It took a few tries, though. My camera did have difficulty focusing on it at first, and it kept flying away.

But that’s the fun part.

Hopefully taking pictures won’t take up all the time I need to spend writing. There is one advantage to writing at night: I can only take so many nighttime photos.
