Okay, so I know it’s not really spring, but this morning the sun is peeking out, and I saw a yellow crocus, my first one, while out walking. Not only that, I’m eagerly springing back into a rewrite I’ve put off for a long time, a novel called Finding Nonna. (In one version, it was called Spring Forward, Ellie, which may be why I feel this fresh excitement to work on it, now with a hint of Spring in the air. )
I’m publicly proclaiming to all of you that I will pursue this time, and get this book completed and off to market. It’s a book dear to my heart, dealing as it does with a tough topic: Ellie’s beloved grandmother has Alzheimer’s (early stage) and is coming to live with them.
But the book has humor as well, and a particularly personable Snow Goose.
Okay, that’s all I’m going to say about it, remembering the writer’s maxim, if we talk about a book too much, we tend not to write it!
So I’m signing off rather quickly this time. If you’re looking for me, I’m holed up at the computer, boldly writing away, while outside on the deck two dark-eyed juncoes, who also believe it’s Spring, are trilling along to keep me company.
