15 animators, 8 minutes, and a whole lot of yellow sticky notes.

I needed something like this.

On Saturday I went to Mount Rainier for a couple of hikes with a friend from work, a couple of coworkers, and some Hike-a-Thoners. We tackled Tolmie Peak Lookout in the morning, and fortunately it was clear enough at the top that I got a few pictures (never mind that the white balance situation on my camera is atrocious). 

On our way back down, we swam in Eunice Lake for a bit and then headed to a birthday potluck picnic at the Mowich campground before going to Spray Park in the afternoon. 

I’ll have to revisit Spray Park another day. I got a chance to see some gorgeous flowers there on Saturday, and the fog was really mysterious and pretty but the mountain was hiding (as she does so often on this side). 

Total hiking stats: 

~15 miles hiked
2600 feet elevation gained

Pros of focusing a story around friendship instead of romance

the-right-writing:

  • Less danger of writing awful purple prose
  • Friends can survive without constantly being around each other
  • Friendships are really cute
  • It’s easier to write healthy friendships
  • Somebody can be friends with two people without it turning into an annoying “friendship…

I’m on board for this except: 

  • Most people don’t collapse into irrational heaps of strong emotions whenever they see their friends, which makes it way easier to fight off attacking ninjas

My friends and I are living, walking irrational heaps of strong emotion, made infinitely stronger and more irrational when we see each other after a long absence, and yet we still manage to function pretty durn well.

But the point is taken. Write more friendships — I’m sick of romance.
