Moving the nest...

Lots going on these days.  I feel like a crazy mother bird.  My nest has been uprooted and I'm busy building our new nest (a long work in progress).  I'm also editing Story Pie Press' second book, and am in the middle of reading through focus group comments for our third book (TBD), all while dreaming of a day when I can start writing again.  It feels like it's been much too long.  It's an interesting balance...being an editor of a small publishing press and a writer.

My goal, before 2010 is over, is to finish one of these novels I've been building for years.  Finally.  All I'm asking for is one draft.  I can do it.  I can do it.  I CAN DO IT!  Isn't that what the fledgling says before it jumps out of the nest to fly?  Then it lands on a deck to sing a sweet song of success.
