I just posted my first real post over at our new 4 Corners Critique Group blog. It is what I would have written here had I not had to write there. So this blog gets short ended today because I am low on time. Go read it if you have time, and tell me what you think.
As for Some Mad Hope, all I have for you today is a dinner table conversation from last night. Just to show you how all-consuming this writing thing is.
My six year old writes books daily. She puts lots of papers together, staples them in the middle, and writes and illustrates them in her spare time at school. Every day we get two or three new installments to read at dinner.
Last night her book was about a baby bird who learns to fly. It was a happy book.
My son - who is ten - pipes up:
"You should have made the baby bird fall out of the tree and die or get hurt. Agents would like that better. It has more drama."
And here I thought he never listened to me!
