    Well, it’s raining up here in Bucks County. Thanks for passing it along from your corner of VA. The Child Bride’s petunias need it. Saturday morning and nothing to do? Now you can pull up the WIP and share with those of us trying to get a clue about this writing thing. I have included you in the “777 Writer’s Challenge”. See


    for the details. Jump in and share with us out here in WP land.

      I appreciate the challenge, and would love to join you, my writing hasn’t been going very well lately and all I could offer are scraps. It’s a struggle to find the “write” stuff. I’d love to try it when the muse decides to revisit. And I do appreciate the invite!

    I tried real hard. But I trusted my wife to bring out the writer in me, and I think she did.

    Your writing stands out like a palm tree swaying in the breeze on a deserted beach. You’re drawn to it and can’t look away. Maybe not the proper imagery, maybe more like a train wreck, lol that you can’t resist a look at, maybe because the writing can be haunting, right? But, your work stands out. Take a break. Regroup. But, keep writing. I’ve seen no blog writing like yours. Look forward to Version 2.0. xoxo

      You’re very welcome, and thank you! I haven’t posted anything in the past month, until today. Right now I’m struggling with another novel and it’s a slow moving train. Thank you again, and keep on posting! πŸ™‚
