Can you afford to arrange such a unique work experience?

Pull the car over, get out, snap a photo, using about half of iPhone’s zoom feature.

Zoom in all the way. Not bad for a phone camera.

 

Can you afford to arrange such a unique work experience?

Trick question.

Can you afford to not do it?

Write like you mean it

Sanibel Island Pizza
Tradition on every Writer’s Retreat to Sanibel is to stop at Island Pizza on the way to the beach cottage.

 

Cheryl has been working for me off and on since i first began in 2008, even before i incorporated as an LLC.

This past week she spent hours editing (rewriting and making artistic enhancements) much of the new website copy.

Why?

Because she thought the current copy and layout could be improved.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Upsides have downsides and vice versa

Apple Notes writing app
Created documents in Apple’s Notes app so i could write in Glacier Park.

 

There’s an inherent risk in trying anything new.

There’s also opportunity for a breakthrough as well.

What’s our risk tolerance, if we were brutally honest?

The upside to being able to write without an internet connection is the fact that you can do it from anywhere using just an iPhone.

The downside is the price you pay when you return to civilization and all the catching up required to go from analog to cyberspace.

It’s taken three days to adjust from doing things differently last week in Montana.

Taxing?

Yes.

To the point of wondering if it was/is worth it.

But traveling without a laptop last week was a huge first. Not to mention no cellular signal except at Glacier’s eastern entrance – nowhere in the 1,000,000 acre park, and no ATT in West Glacier.

Digital withdrawal?

Kinda.

With an upcoming trip to France (leaving in 20 days), the Glacier experiment has boosted my confidence.
