The Grass Canoe

This is a journal about a writing life and what it is like to become a novelist at age fifty-eight. It will explore books and literary influences, day-to-day life as an author, thoughts and experiences with the writing process, and why storytelling is such a basic need for all of us. I’ve spent three decades writing nonfiction about land and people and have grown comfortable doing it. Embarking on novel writing is a new adventure, daunting and exciting in equal measures, requiring me to exchange a sturdy wooden canoe for one made of grass.

Let’s see how far I can go.
