A New Story
A new story is playing out in my mind lately. I love writing but sometimes it seems so much slower than my imagination. I know what is going to happen next but I have to get the characters there on paper. It is like getting all of my children into the car to go somewhere; full of tricky moments. First you have to find all of the socks and then the shoes. If it is winter you have the added steps of hat and coat. Finally, when they are dressed you have to physically lead each one to the car. Sometimes one will wander down the hall after a toy or downstairs to get something. The process is repeated every time but never gets easier.
