This is a photo from a trip I did to the Great Wall a while back. It seemed appropriate today given that I feel like I've come to part of my ms where lots of (mental) climbing is going to be necessary. This is not automatically a bad thing. I find that sometimes, standing back and thinking over an issue can take a story in completely new and exciting directions, which is what I'm hoping will happen here.
And talking about stretching mental muscles, have a look at this article about Norah Vincent, who spent 18 months living as a male and has now written a book about it. A must-read for every author who wants to get into the male point of view???
