Funny that we should be writing about author drama this week. Because you'll note that I've been a no-show for a few trips around the ole blog cycle. I'd like to think I had a good reason - but I suspect that's how most author drama starts. With the best of intentions. >>Peers at Twitter. Okay. Maybe not.
Anyway - I bailed because I went to Ireland.So accept this writerly drama in the form of a few photos:
This is the Abbey at Cong. 7th Century. Lovely old ruin with a familiar story. Everything was going along just fine for the monks living here until the Vikings landed and started killing everyone and taking their stuff.
This is at Dún Aonghasa on Inis More in the Aran Islands. It's an old ring fort overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. That cliff I'm sitting on goes 100 feet down to crashing waves - but I swear I am NOT sitting on the edge of the world. There was another sizeable slab of stone under my feet.
