Very busy writing

With a little help from my friends.

I've been so busy writing, that I've forgotten to post in a long time.

I have two short stories in their "rough" stage and one well-outlined. Since I've been working in my office, I have been more focused and productive. It helps that my hand has healed, too.

Read THE WINTER GARDEN, and was blown away.

Wrote the outline for a short story with an interesting (to me) moral dilemma. I'm not sure if I can contain it in a short story, of if it will wind up being a novel.

What are you reading?

Still more reading than writing.

I just completed HAVE A LITTLE FAITH. WOW. It's been a long time since a book moved me in this way--laughing and crying, examining myself and my life's purpose (sounds cliche, but it's true) and wanting to recommend it to EVERYONE!

Really, you should read this. This is a keeper, and a great book for a gift.
