A Brave New World?

Ruth Ayers has inspired me. A few years ago, before the other five grandkids arrived,  I started a children's book for my granddaughter, Kaylee. It has sat on my laptop all this time. I open it up once in awhile, play with it a little and then close it up. In my recent Web 2.0 class, I worked on some different ways to illustrate it, but, again, closed it up.

I've been following Ruth's new blog, Ruth Ayers Writes. Today's post dealt with fear. Specifically, a character's fear, but this easily transfers to my own. What am I afraid of?  That the story won't be any good?  Rejection?  Being laughed at?

So today, I start a new writer's notebook and dust off the story--plus a couple of others that have been running around in my brain.  And I will write...

Will I share?  Only time will tell.


  1. a wonderful goal to work on, Deb. Go for it! I'd love to see it, and remember, you have more grandchildren who will love it!

  2. Wow - that's awesome! Make it come back to life and let the story be told. Happy writing!

  3. Thanks for the support ladies. With you, I may share.

  4. Between you and the other blog I read I've thought about writing. Hmmm...Who knew?

  5. Write write write...for no other reason than it makes you smile and it feels really good to have written. Lucky grandkids of yours -- having someone write because of them.
