I woke up this morning remembering the remnants of a dream that will make such an awesome story. I've been playing with the idea all day and can hardly wait to start writing it. Unfortunately, I have no time today or tomorrow. It makes me want to scream. I have critique group tonight, a stake camp meeting tomorrow morning, and a stake youth activity tomorrow night. I guess I can squeeze some writing in tomorrow afternoon between chores and activities. Maybe even a bit tonight after critique group. I have to take my kids with me this time around so I won't stay as late as usual, so, yeah, I might just be able to do a bit tonight. Hooray!
On another note, I've been invited to help with a literacy presentation at a school in April. I'm not even published yet and have an invitation to talk about how writers come up with their ideas. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed and thrilled at the same time. If I'm going to talk about any part of writing, coming up with ideas is definitely my thing. I've got more ideas than I'll ever be able to write. I can feel confident in this thing at least.
On a third note, I'll be publishing a blog over at LDS Writer's Blogck every Sunday from now on. I've been a part of the group from near the beginning but haven't been very regular with my blogs. I'm changing that now. I'm really excited to be posting with this amazing group of writers. If you haven't checked them out before, please do. They've got some awesome advice on writing and are some of the most wonderful people I've met.
And thus ends my rambling post. Until tomorrow . . .
Quote of the Day: "One nice thing about putting the thing away for a couple of months before looking at it is that you start appreciate your own wit. Of course, this can be carried too far. But it's kind of cool when you crack up a piece of writing, and then realize you wrote it. I recommend this feeling."
