What Am I Up to These Days?

Posted on: July 24, 2009

PegFinley_pic I am so blessed. Raising two boys gives me opportunities that I might otherwise miss. I can go to the zoo, even the petting zoo and no one will question it. I can swing as high as I want on the swing. I can make a trip to the park.  I can sit on the floor and play with the toys that the astronauts played with in space. All I have to do is say that the boys wanted to do it. It’s great for research and it serves as a good activity for my nephews.

I’m working on a picture book. The rough draft is finished. Now, for the first of many revision to perfect the book.

My two pb critique groups have been keeping me busy. They challenge and inspire me.  I’m working on a nonfiction piece for the third one.

I took the boys to a Birthday Party at the local library. Afterward they found books to read. I even picked up the last Harry Potter book. Should be a nice break from writing during the weekend when I have no kids.

My Favorites:

I love the children's movies Wizard of Oz and the Neverending Story. Both movies make me feel the lesson that hope is alive and well. After seeing UP this past week, it just might have a chance at being added to this list.

I love the cool colors of blues and purples.Those colors are peaceful for me.

I love The Velveteen Rabbit. Even as an adult, I still feel the urge to cry when he becomes real. I know, silly, but a good book can make me laugh and cry as it takes me on a magical journey.
