Photos + root canal + hornets = book?

What on earth do multiple hornet stings, bathroom renovation, root canals, and binge TV watching have to do with writing a book? Find out today on my post at Writer Unboxed, “Cooking a Book.”

I also talk about photography. While I’m waiting for my next story to come together in my mind, I’ve been taking lots and lots of photos (which you already know if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram).

Here are a few I’ve taken in the past few days. Hope you’re all having a wonderful summer!


We had a lot of fog lately… this was the day after it lifted



As the fog rolled out…sun rolled in



I love visiting docks in the early morning when the water is glassy

  2. Lovely photos, Julia! I look forward to seeing your morning pictures of the water and boats. It’s so calm and serene.
    Hope your everything is working out well with your current WIP.
