Hi JFriday, welcome back.

Good Morning! I'm back.
Kids' school starts today. So my goal for this week is to just practice getting up at 5am and being able to free-write.
Hope you all are writing away.

Hi JFriday - hope your revisions are coming along nicely.

Waking up at 5am is really hard, but I did it. :-)

Good morning, Melissa, Darshana, and JFriday! I wrote a lot yesterday, now that we've caught up after being gone, and I have a few more writing days before we leave again (oh, those triple-digit temps above 110!), and am always amazed at how many revisions that can be made to a picture book text.  :faint

Happy writing, all, and have a lovely weekend!

Aloha,
Tori :palmtree :pizza

good morning - i did wake-up at 5am-ish sort of. decided to lay in bed and just "think" about my new PB story, didn't work. i learned to brainstorm i need to have a pencil and paper. but then later while my husband was watching of the mini-video clip of our kids as toddlers for the umpteenth time (our kids are now elementary-aged) i got a new PB idea and will be attempting to story boarding it later since it is a one-word book! weird how our brains work, especially since the video clip is one i have seen many times as well over the years.

Happy Friday!

That's cool, Darshana. Isn't it awesome when inspiration comes out of the old and well-known and habitual parts of life? For some reason it always feel like an extra surprise. (Also, a one-word PB: fun.)

Tori, I hope you stay cool and get a lot done while you're home.

I'm checking in.

Happy weekend, indeed, Melissa! I'm just stopping by before doing some revision. We're heading out again Wednesday for a few weeks....goodbye to triple digits...but I'm taking my notebook, of course.

Happy writing, everyone! :writing3

It's after seven, and my son is still asleep. I'm going to try to get a few minutes of writing in. Three cheers for my kiddo!
