Hi There!

My brother got married this weekend (that's him right there!). It was beautiful and wonderful and happy. We are all in love with his new bride, Star, so we are all just thrilled.

And now we are back to our regularly scheduled program. Not writing for four days makes you feel a little crazy.

I'm going to get a page finished on my WIP and I might dabble a little with a short story I've ben working on, but we'll see how much time I have.

I'm also planning to start reading blogs tomorrow again - though there is no way I'll catch up with the 300+ blog posts from the past four days.

I just started Across the Wall by Garth Nix and, though I'm biased because Garth Nix is one of my favorite authors, so far I'm impressed. I get so wrapped up into his stories. Across the Wall is a collection of his short stories and he discusses candidly his writing process. It's really inspiring (which is why I want to pick up one of my short stories again).

Are there any stories that you can't get out of your head or wish you could finish or have time to work on? I guess that's part of the disadvantages of having multiple WIPs.

I'm going to be asking my Pledge Writers to post this week so, get ready.

Looks like a lovely bride and groom! (And I really like the name Star--how cool!) I am just visiting for the first time. I read your bio and send you my warmest thoughts about your first child, Janell. Of course I don't know the whole story, but I admire the way you own that experience and are open about it. Too many people in our culture don't feel comfortable talking about loss.
In huge admiration and empathy,

Lots of blogs to catch up on, but so glad you are having fun.

I've never read Garth Nix--I think I should now.

SUCH a beautiful wedding picture! Congrats to your brother.

Congratulations to your brother!

I never feel like I have enough time to write. I think even if it was all I ever did, I wouldn't have enough time. That's because each page takes a while for me to get out.

Thank you for the post. :)

Liz.......I'm quite sure that you might not remember me, but I was very great friends with your mom and dad when you were born. I lived next door to you in Freemont. I haven't been in touch for a very long time but always think of you and David and your parents. I was so sorry to read about the loss of your first babe but am so happy that you are now the proud mom of two beautiful darlings. I will always love you and your family and will never forget all the great and wonderful times we had. Love.............Pam

Pam, I do remember you. Well, I remember your name... and I think there are pictures of you in my photo album. Thank you for the comment.
