Journal Excerpt: Research Trip to Utah

From my journal: 11-18-12″

“…I am preparing to travel to Utah.  Haven’t been back in a year and a half.  The last time was for the funeral.  I just rented a car and I began looking online for references for the book I am writing about Elam Luddington’s journey to Siam.  It’s history but I’m going to add some fiction elements.  I am not a fiction type but the workshop I am taking right now is a fiction writing workshop at the Bethesda Writer’s Center so they are helping me to add the color and flavor of fiction.  I am excited….”

[Update: I later decided to take out any fictional elements after a second workshop I took about non-fiction.]
