Busy day. Just one of many in what is going to be a busy week. It's recital week for my tap and ballet dancing son. If you missed that post from last year check it out here.
I'll jump right into the two lines I've read this week.
The judge's harsh comment could have broken my spirit and killed my dream. Instead, I decided to prove her wrong.
Those lines come from my friend Deborah Elliott-Upton. They are part of her inspirational essay in the collection of such works, titled Daily Devotions for Writers.
The following comes directly from the back of the book ...
Daily Devotions for Writers is the friend every writer needs: warm, real-life, how-to-write stories, prayers, and inspirational quotes to keep you writing every day of the year.
Several of my writing friends have pieces among the 366 in the book and I've enjoyed reading about the struggles and triumphs of my fellow writers. There is an essay for each day but it's not a calender per say so You can start anywhere you choose and have something to read each day for the next year. I have my autographed copy and if you are interested in obtaining yours follow the link above to Debbie's post for the information.
And for two lines I wrote? Thought I'd give you a break from Booty and give y'all a bit from a short story that I wrote a while back, but tweaked this week so I could submit it a journal.
Annie's mother would cringe at the thought of yellow shutters.
White shutters, white walls, white wedding dresses - there could be no other kind.
