Day 13 at Camp Nanowri
On My Way to 50,000 Words

At writing camp it’s nice they let you sleep in on Saturday morning. Later there was a welcomed ‘out of camp trip’ to The Farmers Market in Rocky Mount, NC. Since I have recently arrived in the area, I didn’t know a soul while mingling with the crowd, which felt lonely. I kept smiling and saying hello. (It doesn’t hurt to try and make a good impression, right?) When people smiled back, I felt better. The highlight of the market was eating a small piece of cooked corn, butter and salt provided. At first I hesitated…corn in my teeth…good or bad decision? The answer to that was…you don’t know anyone, so who cares. I bought more delicious corn. Now it’s time to get back to writing; perhaps a scene where tomatoes, squash and melon are mentioned.
