Now that Nellie is busy impressing an agent, I will start my quest for fiction. I want to make something up, something that matters. Step one is to relisten to Angela Hunt’s tapes from Mt. Hermon. Once they get me rolling, step 2 is to apply Donald Maas’ lessons to what I write. My school kids asked me to write about a family that stays together. I thought that was interesting because even kids know that keeping marriages together is important. I smell popcorn – better go see if I can mooch some.
