But I thought I'd share some pictures of what I did on Monday:
|Lava River Caves, Bend, Oregon|

But one of the side effects of my lack of adventure is that I tend to draw on my distant past for story ideas, rather than be inspired by the present.
Now I still don't know if this cave will ever make it into a story or not. I didn't get a light bulb idea while I was down there. I was too busy trying to keep warm and avoid tripping over rocks.
In any case, I've built up my idea bank. Not only that, but I have a load of sensory experiences to impart to any future character who gets stuck in a cave.
And that made facing my fear of enclosed spaces and bats all the more worth it.
Hope you are all having a wonderful summer, full of adventure!
How does real life inspire you?
