WHAT I’M READING
I just started THE DREAM THIEVES
WHAT I’M WRITING
Editing JULES and even closer to the end. Since I’d taken a break it was hard to get back in the zone. I worked on the same scene for days, feeling completely disconnected. Now I’m back on track and my tentative plan is to start querying this spring.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
There are several businesses that have recently opened near me – coffee/tea/chocolate type places – and I can’t wait to check them out over the next few weeks. I’m hoping they are the start of a downtown revitalization in my town because it’s sad to walk to Main Street and see a bunch of shuttered buildings.
WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO
The other week when I was cleaning, I found an old 35mm camera with film still inside. I had it developed this past weekend and found Christmas pics from about five or six years ago which was a nice surprise. My niece was a baby and my little bro looked so young.
I felt like such a dolt at the photo counter at CVS because I’ve had a digital camera for so long I’d forgotten how to drop off actual film. I was basically like, “Me at right place? You make picture squares?”
