Photos of Another Day Trip! Also, IWSG Day and WRiTE Club

It's Insecure Writer's Support Group day!

According to Ninja Captain Alex, its purpose is "to share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!"

Well, I'm feeling insecure about how little writing I've been doing. That feeling only comes from comparing my lack of progress to others' leaps and bounds, though.

And there's no call for that sort of thinking! Hopefully all the various real life happenings will be good story fodder someday when I do get back into the writing groove.

If you haven't been writing as often as you'd like, you can still support other writers!

For instance, Jessica Bell has a new book - White Lady - coming soon and she's giving away a copy for free to everyone who signs up to the "Two Lies and a Truth" blog tour (to take place from 1 to 31 October).

Details and sign-up form here.

And you can visit the WRiTE Club site and vote for a new story twice per week! There are lots of fun story snips this time around.

We took another day trip!

This time to Sion, the capital of the Valais region of the Alps. It's situated in a valley between many higher peaks, and has been inhabited for thousands and thousands of years. We visited the Valère basilica/castle, which began to be built in the 12th century.

View of the mountains.
It was an overcast day, which was lucky as we did lots of walking and climbing, and it might have been too hot otherwise.

City hall

Valere basilica

Mountains on the other side of the castle

The 15th century organ, one of the oldest functioning organs in the world.
There are stairs behind the wall (I was wondering how to get up there, myself)

A depiction of Saint Sebastian, painted in 1437.
1437! That's even older than the period of two of my stories!

It was maybe 17 degrees Celsius the day we visited. Funny to see snow - above the clouds - on the heights!

Feeling on top of the world

Hmm, I fixed this photo, I swear.
Anyway, it's a tower down in the town called the Sorcerer's Tower,
in reference to the witch trials that used to take place inside.

Happy Canada Day and Fourth of July and weekend to everyone!
