The East Range
If I want to be a writer, I have to write something. If I write something, I have to write something people will read. If I want to be a writer, procrastination has to be done away with. Uncertainty has to be done away with.
I have made the decision. Tomorrow I start to write. Today I have to go out to the east range. Far out on the eastern edge of the Llano Estacado. Fence lines have to be rode and fixed. Readied for the winter herd.
The Llano is a good place for a writer. Modern life doesn’t apply here. A writer can be alone to think up any kind of story he wants. Far out on the Llano when fall winds bring just the right amount of cool air. Air that invigorates man and animal alike. A landscape that fires the imagination. There is no writer’s block here.
Tomorrow I start to write……..but…….I forgot. Tomorrow I have to help bring the herd in.
