If Words were Trees...

On Saturday, we drove into Spray Valley Provincial Park, just south of Canmore, Alberta. What a great escape - the weather was superb, the sky was sapphire blue and the roads were nearly empty.

I did not read, write or edit this weekend - instead, I dedicated my time to thinking and planning.  I figure it is important to take a step back and consider the bigger picture once in a while.  I liken it to the "can't see the forest for the trees" saying - sometimes in the midst of revising a story I can't see the story for the words.  I'm edging toward that right now, so perhaps this weekend away was timely.  So, my goal this week will be to re-read my story front-to-back before I do any more edits.
