No story before its time

My oldest went under the water for the first time. It's a big deal, we spent last summer pushing for lessons and to go under, which didn't work at all. Now she did this on her own, her decision and she is eager for lessons. I'm amazed and so darn proud of her.

Stories can be like that. Sometimes you can't write them before their time or rush them into being. They do things at their own pace. And once they mature enough to write them, the bounty is plentiful.

I had gotten the preliminary idea for Conduit several years ago. But it wasn't ready to be written. I started it but never got into writing. Now? It speaks to me daily whether I'm actively writing it or not. I have pages of notes on ideas of where it is going. Definitely a story that's ready to be told.

LOL I wrote about Phil Vassar the other day, my latest musical obsession. I was quite surprised to see him on a Prilosec commercial the other night. I'm thinking I really didn't want to know he suffered from heartburn. *sigh* But he still could sing the encyclopedia to his piano playing, and I'd love it.

I joined the Fantasy Futuristic & Paranormal chapter of the RWA (http://www.romance-ffp.com/). I love it already. Talking about things that go bump in the night is such a great pastime. I've read Paranormal for years so makes a lot of sense I'm drawn to writing it.

And I'm still sort of awed when I see a name I know. Oooh Sherrilyn Kenyon is in the same chapter as me. Susan Kearney posted something. I'm the same way every time I see Angela Knight's name at anything. Get a shiver up my spine.

May there be nothing but dust under your bed *grins*

Better a Prilosec ad than one for Viagra! LOL The new Toby Keith video cracks me up when he shakes out the little blue pill. :-)

Congrats on your young one taking the plunge!

LOL I did think well at least it wasn't a Viagra ad. I had to go watch Toby Keith's video. Too funny.

Paul Thorn has a song on Viagra. LOL a very funny one.
