150 words

I am so excited to be working on this new project, a new picture book.  It will be a short break from a lengthier project; a novel in verse.   Today, I am finally happy with what I’ve written.  150 words worth keeping.  It doesn’t sound like much but I’ve spent the last two weeks getting here. I have a story line, and now a start to the story.  But this picture book needs more research to flesh out the details. I’m waiting on a documentary which will help enormously, a tour of a boat similar to the one in my story (the original sank) and a visit to the docks on Pender Island.   I love it when things work.

In fact, I’m so please with what I’ve managed to get done that I I think I’ll stop for a cup of tea and maybe even a walk in the late afternoon sunshine.  I think my dog Ruby will be happy with that!  As far as she’s concerned I spend far too much time in front of a computer screen and not near enough time on walks!
