Writing, Writing, Writing

I was worried after the holidays that I wasn't going to be able to find the words for a new nonfiction picture book I'm working on, but I'm pleased to report — the words are coming!

With every new book, I wonder: Will this be the last one I'm able to write? I don't take it for granted that the words will keep coming, and am very grateful when they actually show up.

I'm hunkered over my keyboard, letting the words come out. There's going to be interruptions soon — the Olympics are coming to Vancouver — and none of us have any idea how that's going to affect our daily lives. So, I am working hard now, and trying to get as much done as I can. Wish me luck!

For all of you other wordsmiths out there, I hope the words are flowing for you, too.
