WFMAD for Saturday  
Must hop into shower (well, actually not much hopping at my age) and get ready for the bridal shopping trip. Did manage to get up a little earlier and write for a while. I am hesitant to do much with the final two chapters until I hear back from my editor on the first three. But I am forging ahead, confident that I have something to say. Working on a professional book, I know, is different from what many of the rest of you are doing. I have the utmost respect and am awed by those who can write poetry, novels, and the like. I prefer what I do. And in a way, it is storytelling in a different venue. The reason I read books by Atwell and Allen and others is that they have a voice to them. I hope to do the same.

What photo to share today? How about Scout eating my laptop?

ETA: Thanks for the cheering up comments. I survived the day. Cali has a drop dead gorgeous dress within her budget (thanks to ProfessorNana ponying up half the cost). Now I get to watch Dr. Horrible....
Current Mood: anxiousanxious

The toughest thing I've ever written was the critical bio of Salisbury. It too forEVER, and every word had to be pulled out by the roots. Fiction is much easier and more fun.

You, otoh, are a terrific writer of non-fiction. I have the greatest respect for your ability to write to professionals. My students do, too. NAKED READING is by far the most popular text I've ever used.
