Building a Book

Why I don’t have time today to write a complete blog post: I’ve been restructuring Saving Ivy Hart for (what I hope is) the final time on the storyboard. Still haven’t quite figured out the ending, but I’m getting closer. Now I can take the storyboard down and it can return to its rightful place– blocking the dogs into the bedroom at night. LOL.

Let me know if you’d like a particular theme for the upcoming Story Weekend!

    You know Diane – a while ago you asked the question “do you read the end of a book”. I had to shamefully admit to myself that I usually turn to the end when I am about a quarter into the book. When I read what you wrote about how you tried so hard to keep the reader guessing I was a little ashamed and vowed in the next book not to turn to the end until I actually get there! Well I am reading the Brass Ring – its killing me – I so badly want to know what happens – this is a learning curve, but I am determined not to peek!!!

    I have a thought for story weekend Diane. This morning I was on my way to work and it was still dark out…there was a huge full moon hanging in the sky and was so close, I felt as if I could touch it. Full Moon might be a fun topic.

    Liz, I’m proud of you!
    Margo, thank you for your suggestion! I think I have a topic for this weekend, but will add yours to my list. It sounds like it was a beautiful way to start the day.
