What fascinating, surprising things can you tell us about the origin, writing, revision of this piece?

    “Fish River Canyon” was extracted from the unpublished travel memoir, A Tent Called Simba, which came to life during 2012’s National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). So far, the full-length manuscript has provided a number of short travel stories for stand-alone publication, but in the future, I hope “Fish River Canyon” will appear alongside the other 60,000 words that recount the adventures of two misguided sisters roadtripping through Namibia.
