A day turns into a week...

Wow, a week away from my blog. I haven't done that in over a year.

The next issue of The Prairie Wind comes out tomorrow (May 1st). It has lots of great articles and information, including the News Roundup (written by yours truly). :) Check it out of you get the chance.

Other than that, enjoy the day and get lots of writing done! I'm heading out in a few to take my kids to school, and then I intend to get lots of work done this morning. And this quote reminds me of my WIP:

There are some books that refuse to be written. They stand their ground year after year and will not be persuaded. It isn't because the book is not there and worth being written — it is only because the right form of the story does not present itself. There is only one right form for a story and if you fail to find that form the story will not tell itself.
- Mark Twain

I've kept going on this story for seven years, and I've finally found the right way to tell it. Yay!! :)

Congrats, and thanks for the quote. Unfortunately it hits home uncomfortably close to the truth.

Yay for figuring out how to tell it!
And funny how a week can slip by. Am I responsible?

That quote has always worried me: MY problem is that there seem to be so many ways to tell the story. But I'm glad you're finding the right way to tell yours!

I got lots done today!! There is still lots of work to do, but the story is finally flowing and making sense to me. Yay!!! *happy dance*

And, PJ, it's not your fault that I've been so busy. So don't worry. :)

That's a quote I needed to read! Thanks, and congratulations for finding the voice your story needed so that it can be told.

That's awesome! And congrats on your persistence and not giving on on the best way to present your story! That's what REAL writers are made of!

YOu go girl!
