Happy Monday before Thanksgiving, y'all.
So, my writer's group and I went to a condo in Midway for a writer's retreat over the weekend, and I am proud to announce I kept my promise about not writing a single word.
One of my favorite parts of the weekend was strolling the streets of Park City, and checking out some of the sights where my book takes place. (Did I mention EVERNEATH is set in Park City?)
There's a critical scene in the book, where the main character Nikki meets the guitarist of an indie rock band. The ominous encounter takes place at Harry O's, on Main in Park City.
So we sneaked inside to get a peek.
That's Emily Wing Smith on the right, and I'm the unabomber on the left.
Now, to really get the ambiance of the scene, you have to picture the place at night, jam packed during the Sundance Film Festival. And then picture an awkward teenage girl making her way through the crowd.
Just when she thinks she's going to have to stand there, looking lame and alone, all night, a familiar looking boy from one of the VIP couches scoots over, and makes room for her. She recognizes he's a member of one of her favorite indie bands. Little did she know what that meeting would lead to... and the fateful decision she would make.
Okay, I'm just being silly with the whole tagline thing. dun Dun DUN!!!
Anyway, I loved seeing it in person after I'd been writing about it all month.
Here's another stop on our tour:
Flanagan's. An Irish bar and restaurant. One of my characters in my book gets kicked out of this bar a few times.
They also make a delicious Shepherd's Pie. Yummm.
So, yeah, it was a total blizzard that day. We rode the free trolley to stay out of the weather.
If you're ever in Park City, check out these places, and ride the historic trolley.
So, what's everyone doing for Thanksgiving? We're going down to my hubby's ranch in central Utah. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, especially this year because we have so many things to be grateful for!
Have a fantastic holiday. What's everyone doing? And did you like your tour of the EVERNEATH?
