Rob Carney shares some of his most memorable moments with the moon in his December blog post for his series Old Roads, New Stories: A Blog Series on Terrain.org. The blog posts are short and full of writing inspiration. This post provides a great example of how to attend to the details that can inspire an active writing life.
And don’t miss Carney’s poem “There’s Still So Much to Learn About the Moon” included in this post.
