The Other Traveler
Fiction Writing
Dawn and I are thinking about adding some fiction to our travelogue in the form another person or two who seem to be traveling alongside of us, sometimes in front of us, sometimes behind. At the beginning at least they are not really visible. We will try to discover their identities, their reasons and what it all means for us. We will add this writing to the Travelogue in a way that it will be very clear what is what. The main characters might share our names, at least at first, and you will be reading first drafts or sometimes just notes for things that will be written later.
