Luther College World Tour

Before I forget to mention it, you might remember that I went to Viable Paradise last year, and it changed my writerly life. Well, applications for VP XIV are open as of yesterday. Do you want to know more? Sure you do!


You might remember that Bryon and I went and checked out Nordic Fest in Decorah during the summer for research for the Troll story. Some of the frost elf action takes place at Luther College, so we made arrangements to stay on the campus.

By that time, I had been accepted to Viable Paradise, and so had fellow Iowan Matt Hughes, who is a librarian at Luther. Matt agreed to give us a tour around campus, so on a rainy day, we wandered about and learned a little bit about the setting of the story.

Let me post a couple of picturesque photos here, again to remind myself in January that Iowa *can* look like this!

Here are the rest of the photos, mostly for my edification.


Next up: Nordic Fest Dancing photos.
