Monday Mulligan Stew
Closing in on the holiday one day at a time. Only my hubby to shop for and goodies to make for neighbors and friends. The tree is almost complete. We baked the gingerbread people yesterday and will decorate them today.
Snowy weather has given the world a Christmasy feel.
Writing has been slow to nil with having company. Now I know why I waited until my children were in high school to write seriously. It is hard to concentrate with the chaos of little ones and you're exhausted at night. We've been going to bed an hour earlier than usual. Our grandchildren who are visiting are early risers. 5:30!
I have a shadow any time I'm in the kitchen. The littlest one who is almost three, grabs a stool and stands beside me to "help" cook. She's so full of questions it makes my head spin. LOL And has made me realize I might just need to ask more questions of myself and my characters as I'm writing. By all the questions she asks she makes me dig deeper to explain things.
Who knew I could learn something about writing from an almost three year old?
What have you learned lately?
