I'm traveling across country right now to my new home in College Station, Texas. I keep waking up with beautiful dreams. In one dream, my screenplay sold. In another dream, I got a book contract. I'm trying to be very open to the positive that could be. I'm not sure why this trip is turning up such wonderful thoughts in me. My writing is really at the corners of my life. It's mostly about driving, feeding the cat, hanging with kids, and knitting hats currently.
Be open. That's my advice to you. Open your soul for good things. Believe that you, in your time, will find the pathways of good purpose. I yearn for my voice to heard, for my stories to shared, for those stories to run off to the edges of the world and do more than I could even imagine. I'm open. I'm ready. I'm expecting my dreams to take flight.
One big SHOUT OUT for my friend Stasia Kehoe! She got an agent and sold a book in about a week. Check out her blog, WRITER ON THE SIDE for the inside scoop. (Uh, Stasia, you need to put the inside scoop there or a link or something.)
No doodle this week, but instead I will share this very weird thing that I saw in a grocery store in Wyoming. Yes, that is a three pound can of HONEY POWDER. This will really come in handy for anyone who was stocking up for the end of the world.
My quote for the week because this little phrase keeps coming to me from all sides:
Never, never, never, never give up. Winston Churchill
