I am at the library. I sit on a tall retro stool at a tall stainless-steel table. My notebooks are open, laptop fired up and ready to serve...

Read about my experience at the library, over on the Rose & Thorn Journal blog.

Next, the warm and wise Ana Gonçalves shares how each moment is an opportunity at Pursuing Life, the new blog I recently started with my dear friend and best cohort. Please go read Ana's insightful words, and say hello.

Also, to leave you with a resounding quote:

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Have a wonderful weekend!

Great post at R&T - you've made me want to pack up my stuff and head for my local library to work.

That Eleanor was such a wise woman.

I can't believe it's been two years!

I'm grateful for a writer I respect immensely gently pointing out that my novel about a young Mexican man sounded like it was told from a midwestern white woman in her 30s. Go figure.

I switched to women's fiction after that, and now I feel YA is my thing.
