All good ones though!
I have been writing in every spare moment, between teaching piano, teaching music theory, taking care of a 14 month old, doing Writers Studio exercises and most recently, working on scenes for a novel. I have a narrator in place, I have a location, a time in history and the makings of a story. The story started as a short story exercise in the Writers Studio, based on an Alice Monroe short story. It grew to 20,000 words. Few places want to publish a short (not-so-short) story of that length. So I decided to grow it and see if I have the makings of a novel writer. I’ve been advised that it is far easier to write a book than a great short story. I shall see. Short term goal, stated today, with the best of intentions…start posting short bits and pieces of thoughts here to fuel my head. We’ll see about that too!
