I leave on Monday to spend a month in Bali. I’ve written 100 pages of my Bali novel (still untitled) and I need to immerse myself in Balinese life. I plan to talk to Balinese people and ex-pats to find out as much as I can about life in Bali in 2002 and now. And I’ll take in all the sights, smells, sounds of the island. I’m still a little amazed that I’m doing this — I love travel, I love writing — and now I get to spend a month in Bali for “work.”
So I’m hoping to blog while I’m there. Maybe daily, maybe not — I suppose it depends on how my daily life shapes up. I’ll be traveling a bit, and then staying in one guesthouse for two weeks mid-month. All of the inns have wifi, so I’ll stay connected during the month.
Next blog entry: Bali!
