She's got a ticket to ride...on Amtrak?

Want to see the USA for free?

 

If you are a writer you can do just that with Amtrak's new "writers residency" program that offers free, long-distance, round-trip rides around the USA. Julia Quinn is director of social media for Amtrak and gives some details on the program. A few writers have already tried it out and liked it. For their stories and more details on the program, click on the photo below to link to the original article in The Wire

Amtrak is Doing Something Awesome

So, apparently what started as a casual Twitter conversation (you can find most of it under the hashtag #AmtrakResidency) has turned into the most awesome idea ever.

 

 

Basically, Amtrak has created a ‘writing residency’ program, where writers can pay very little (or nothing) to take a cross-country trip via train and do nothing but write.

Seem weird? You’ve probably never written on a train.

 

You guys. I LOVE TRAINS. Honestly, that was one of my favorite things about the collective year I’ve spent in Europe. Trains. Trains everywhere. They’re cheap and comfortable, way less hassle than flying, and you get to look at all the pretty scenery.

So, how do I sign up for this like right away?

Amtrak Wars: Earth Thunder Bk.6
Amtrak Wars: Earth Thunder Bk.6 - Patrick Tilley The story moved along to it's conclusion, but could have been a bit better. Still a good read, and finally able to see how it ended. Bought books 1 to 5 when they came out in the late 80's, for some reason never got around to book 6 until now.
