The reasons for this blog: 1. To provide basic author information for students, teachers, librarians, etc. (Please see sidebar) 2. I think out loud a lot as I work through writing projects, and I'm trying to dump most of those thoughts here rather than on my friends.

Am waiting for dinner to cook.

Off to what feels like an excellent start. First line of the book, for today anyway: "The cut appeared slowly, a welling red line of blood against Father’s white sleeve." The first scene is done, and it's not any of the ones I had written down on my list. But--for today, anyway--it feels right.

Will see if I can do more later. But first, family must eat.

300 or so words down, probably 50-60K to go.
