Sharing is Caring

I know how beautiful and courageous it is to dip the pen in the inkwell early on, then to stay motivated, finding other voices to keep you inspired. Never give up. Always dare to dream... In the electronic age, all can be heard. The depth of your audience is up to you.

Writing novels on napkins

Yeah, I know. Crazy title, but I can't tell you how many ideas, changes, insights I get as I'm constructing my story and I'm away from the keyboard. At least once a day an idea strikes and I'm off! I write on a Starbucks napkin, the back of a grocery receipt, the edge of a newspaper ad, whatever is immediately available and able to soak up the ink of a particular pen I may be carrying. (I have backed away from cardboard... Just doesn't feel good in my shirt pocket... Never a Sharpie! Screws up my clothes when I forget the napkin and wash it. Anyone else out there doing the same?
