Hello, It’s Another Week


Saturday was the official end-of-Mentor-Program picnic in the mountains.
I gave my mentor, Claudia Mills, a little plaque that included this:



This morning I ran on the trails and fell.
But it was the best fall, ever.
When I told Zebu that, he asked "Did you stick it on the dismount?"
I did!

Today I start my new plan for BIRD BRAIN,
which is to rewrite chapters from scratch.
I’ve been working on voice/characterization but it feels as if I’m
nickel and diming the story.
So….time to get serious and write it anew.

I hope everyone’s Monday is off to a stellar start, and that the week just keeps getting
better and better.

  1. Tracy, sending your cheers and courage as you face the blank page. I’ve been there. Um, I am there. It’s not easy. But… we can do it! And it’s sometimes the only way to go.


    • I appreciate your cheers, and send some back your way. It isn’t easy, and yesterday didn’t go quite as well as I’d hoped. But it does seem the only way to go.



    • I’m glad it’s not just scary for you, but also exciting. And that it’s paying off. I haven’t reached that point yet but will keep at it in hopes of breaking on through to the other side.


    • I like that…blank page fandango. I’ll dance with you, as long as you don’t mind me stepping on your toes now and again. Remember, I’ve got enormous feet.

      You can do it, too, Laurie. One, two, three….GO!


    • No more falling sounds good to me. As always, it happened so quickly I didn’t know what was going on until I was down. But no skinned palms or knees. Still, no more falling!
