I am so excited about the progress I’ve made in the past month. I’ve completed about half of the first draft of the book. My trusted advisers have given me great feedback. I’m hoping to work steadily during the month of May to complete the first draft. I love the little people I’m creating. Their faces remind me of my childhood friends, my kids and their friends, and children I’ve seen along the way in my 56 years of life. As they begin to take shape, I imagine personalities for them that grow and develop as the pages develop. It is a process infused with love. This act of creating makes me very happy.
