The time has come...

Good Evening!  I hope every one's weekend is going well.  I am feeling well rested, have been fairly productive, and still have a whole day off to look forward to.  Yay, for three day weekends!  Although I have the urge to power nap, I have deemed today, "Pull Everything Together Day", and in a few minutes, I will do just that.

It took some time, but I finally hunted down all my notebooks, scraps of paper, and scribblings.  I have been hand writing my story on the advice of a dear friend, and debut Author, Miriam, (check out for thoughts on Writing, and the occasional cute animal pic).  I found her advice to be sound- you are far less likely to edit in real time when writing by hand.  There is no backspace option when something doesn't suit you, and erasing or scribbling over your words does nothing to hide the evidence of their untimely death.  Yesterday, I wrote out a very important scene, of which I am particularly proud, and there is no way I would have gotten as far as I did if I had been at my laptop. 

However, the time has come to add everything to my saved draft.  I ask for crossed fingers as I control the urge to edit prematurely, and that everything will back-up safely

In the meantime, in homage to Miriam; please enjoy these baby ducks.
