Only one of the millions of reasons I'm writing my novel.

I have felt a strong desire to finish this revising of my book. My goal is to touch someone’s life. It is hard to write with therapies, dinner, laundry and busing everyone places. Somehow, I know with prayer and faith I will find time to write and finish this book it’s been waiting to be published for nine years now.
I have been wondering why young teenagers feel a need to have a girlfriend or boyfriend. I guess it’s to hold on to something that is missing.
This is one reason I'm writing my novel. Teenagers need to taste all types of gum before making a choice of which one is their favorite. I wish, oh how I wish, I didn’t have a study boyfriend in high school. It was a pivotal moment that has caused a lasting affect on my life! After 28 years it still haunts me.

Been sick... but thinking about book.

On New Years Eve my daughter was sharing the story of my book with a friend as we sat around the Kitchen table. I was thrilled to see her expressions with each scene she shared. I have not written in my book since before Christmas, but ideas and stories I need to write about keep coming to mind.
I'm sick and feel horrible. Sad part is I can't take anything for the cold with having Glaucoma.
