I relate to adventure writing at constanttrek better than any other I’m reading right now. In her most recent post Paula explains how absorbed she’s become in Nomad culture, how uncertain the future of the trek is, and how reluctant she is to pursue commercial funding.
Much of my hopes about this part of the walk rested on getting some kind of publicity, in order to help sell my first book, and to raise some money. But there has been no media interest, although this is the first time any Westerner has crossed this part of the desert on foot; and never has a woman alone attempted anything like it. Part of me thinks I should be doing that horrible networking thing to get papers and TV interested; but something in me just balks at all of that. I am doing this because it is what I want to do, and I love it.
