Too hot to think

Today was a very hot day at 27 C°. When the weather is like this, I find it hard to think so my writing goal for the day was quite humble: write a short plot plan for the rest of the novel. Which I did, sitting by the shore of the Surtesjön in the VättlefjällFortsätt läsa ”Too hot to think”
