Visiting Spring Brook this morning. What’s in my composition book? Developing the back story of two of our main characters. I find that I’m a combination of plotter and pantser (..”by the seat of your pants” type). I don’t know exactly how everything (or even what for that matter) will unfold in the town of Spring […]

In order to be more proactive with my writing I’ve scheduled writing time into my daily “schedule” (I’m not organized or cool enough to have an actual schedule.) This […]

Well we might be late to the party here, but I am happy to report that Northeastern Maine is finally getting with the program and it’s looking as if Spring is officially here. To celebrate we cleaned off the side porch, which also happens to be our front porch for all intents and purposes due […]
