Tangible Dreams

I find it fascinating that, ever since I started writing, my daydreams include a running narrative. I start with an idea then, unintentionally, I find myself solidifying the action and adding the accompanying text. Similarly, when I'm painting, I find myself fantasizing about the mood and thoughts of the characters in the illustration. I don't remember doing either process before I became a writer. It seems writing has transformed my elusive dreams into tangible stories.

It's Showtime Folks

The East Mountain Dance Conservatory 2010 Recital is over at last! The dancers and crew were amazing and I would do it again in a hearbeat yet I am very glad I can finally get back to writing. My goal is to complete "Oasis" by the Romance Writers of America conference in late July. It will be a challenge but I'm more excited than scared. To paraphrase one of my favorite quotes from the "Miri" episode of the original Star Trek series - write, write or else "bonk, bonk on the head."
