Even their old jail (now offices) is quaint, and you should see the fire station. A lot of my strolls were in the evening, though &#8212; not the best time to get architectural snapshots.</p> <p>Took a walk every day around the burg, toasted my feet in front of a wood stove, had some <a href="" target="links">awesome meals</a> and got a lot of writing and revising done. I&#8217;m back into a big project I&#8217;d set aside and I hope to maintain my forward momentum!</p> <p>On the way back, my flight into Chicago was delayed so I missed my connection and had to stay overnight &#8212; so special thanks to EMeta for buyin&#8217; me some Chicago deep-dish pizza. I believe the technical term is &#8220;<span class="caps">NOM</span> <span class="caps">NOM</span> <span class="caps">NOM</span>&#8221;.</p> <p>P.S. A story from Camille&#8217;s upcoming collection went live at <a href="" target="links">Fantasy Magazine</a> right before I left for VT. Everyone loves <a href="" target="links">&#8220;Shades of White and Road&#8221;</a> so why wouldn&#8217;t you?</p> For your informedness 2009-04-16T10:26:49+00:00 2009-04-24T11:44:14+00:00 <p>I won&#8217;t be blogging much for the next week or so &#8212; I&#8217;m on a writing retreat in Vermont and have self-limited (and actually limited) access to the internet. Photos of cute Vermont buildings will be forthcoming at some later date.</p>
