Well this writing of my time in New Orleans is helping me in the thinking department of the new book. Not so much in the actual writing of words on paper but that's okay. I'm spending a lot of time just sitting in my room, spinning in my chair and thinking about Frankie. I feel like I am unraveling my story and Frankie's story at the same time. And because I shared some of my story by writing it down, I'm hoping he'll share some more of his.

I'd like to know his sister's name and I think I know what happened to Max, the dog, but I'm not sure he's willing to tell me about that part yet. It's okay. I know he's scared. I did dream about him last night in his hiding place. He's very good at being quiet. Very good at being invisible. Even better at keeping secrets. But that's okay. I can wait.

Thanks, tg. Now if only PROCESS would move toward PROGRESS, it would be great.

I'm always fascinated by the way stories unfold themselves. I've often wanted to keep a journal of a novel but stink at regular updates. Hopefully this will help me do it somewhat. (Boy, that's a bad sentence but I'm too tired to go back and change it.)

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
