Writing About Living in a Hole

Having the time to write, to photograph, to think and doodle at your own fee will is surely worth something. I do not know if I can live in cramped confines like this man, but there is surely something to the idea of limiting your physical horizons so you can look inwards.

I did not have the time or the energy for the 1000 words yesterday, I did not put my writing on priority, and I am missing my writing class this Saturday. So, Good Morning World, and 2000 words, here I come!

    Fascinating. My husband and I are trying to figure out the best way to downsize but a hobbit hole is a bit small for a family of three, even if one of us is hobbit sized.

    You can do it. I took a writing class and they said the secret to writing is writing. Go figure.

    Wow… I never gave much thought to how true that statement is until I just read it. While I’m not too sure about living a ‘hobbit’ life, I surely do admire Dan for what he’s doing – living the dream that the rest of us spend all of our time chasing after.
    Excellent post, my friend! And one that has filled an old, fat man with some potentially wonderful and dangerous ideas! 😀
