I don't know why mountains have such a claim on me. I need them. I need to see them. I live in a flat place and so - I make sure my email page has mountains on it. I have them here... in pictures and as the backdrop.
But I have them in my stories too - I know part of it is their majesty - they touch the sky! But some of it is their ever-changing weather. Nothing is 'normal' on a mountain.... I like that about writing too. When it's good, it's not normal - it's exhilarating.
'Blue' isn't exhilarating - but it's fun. I'm wondering if it needs a mountain. I think I'll throw one in. When we get to Weirland, the land of the dragons, I think that would be fitting. You can't have dragons without caves.... and you really can't have good sized caves without mountains.
Ah - I feel better already....
Also - got a thousand word chapter written today. That is exhilarating!
