September has been full of exploration. Always one of my favorite times of year, this time I’m actually getting outside more than usual. A quick tour:
1. The daily wanderings, around Bozeman. Getting out despite waning daylight, weather, and such.
Dusk descent back into Hyalite canyon.
Blustery day in Bozeman.
2. Working on some stories about Yellowstone National Park. A week on horseback in the backcountry.
Coming down from Bighorn Pass, Yellowstone National Park.
Mules and horses moving over Fawn Pass in Yellowstone.
My tent, perched next to the horses, in a backcountry camp.
Trying on a new town: Bozeman. Learning new trails with old friends. Trying out being 100% freelance.
This morning, spontaneous bike ride with my friend Heidi.
Which meant early dinner and time to work on the novel with a glass of Malbec this evening. I could get used to this schedule.
Here’s a new side project I’m working on with a few friends: Montana Backcountry – a new adventure blog. The four of us spend a lot of time cavorting around the mountains, but we all have different interests and passions. Hunting, skiing, mountain biking, backpacking, wild game recipes, trail running, rafting, climbing, camping with toddlers. And so on. Whether you want inspiration or arm-chair adventure … I’ll be posting there from time to time.
This sweet little book arrived today. Includes an essay I wrote for The Nervous Breakdown.com. From The History Press.
Well folks, after a lovely little break called graduate school, I’m about to earn a fancy piece of paper and enter the full-time working world again. I’ll be ramping up my freelance work in the coming months, and I’d be happy to write a blog for your garden center or business, craft a press release, write a newsletter, or proofread for you.
So if you’re looking for a writer or editor (for a few hours, a few days, or on a regular basis) just holler. I’ll be ready. white.jennyd (at) gmail
I spent 10 years as a full-time magazine writer and editor. I’m now living on a shoestring budget to put myself through graduate school for an MFA in creative writing. Which means I’m for hire: for writing, editing, tutoring, or walking your dog. This site is just a landing point for a little about me, my writing and where to find it.
If you need to hire a writer … I’m your woman. And my dog thanks you for your business–he likes to eat well.
