While at the LASCBWI conference I was having loads of story ideas. Some crept up as character sketches others as written passages. I have started to focus on writing after this conference. I love it! During the morning I follow Laurie Halse Anderson’s 15 minutes a day and by night Bria Quinlan’s #Aug1k1hr.
Yesterday during my morning 15 minutes I got down half of a first draft for Silent Boy. That title will probably change but it is my current name for him. He will probably recognize himself if he looks at my blog. Write from what we know right? I think not only that but what we love/care about. Otherwise how is our heart going to be present?
