Wekkly Wednesday W-update 7-18-18

Hello Readers,

I am always pleasantly distracted by new ideas and new possibilities.  I often wish I had a few extra copies of myself so I could work on many different projects. But, alas, there is only one of me wanting to accomplish some many things at once.

Aside from the books I am working on now, I have more picture books, chapter books, and art ideas I want to work on. 

Well, I off to work on a bit of everything.

July 11th 2018: The Honor of Writing

The Honor of Writing

      I was writing a story a few years ago and there was a side character that kept popping into my mind. This character was a beautiful, wise, charismatic man and that character was based on my grandfather. That unfinished story has gone nowhere. It was, though, the beginning of a new idea of dedicating a book to my grandfather. The idea sat around in my head for a while. 

     In May, I sat down and worked on a few new books, two of which are about my grandfather, his amazing life, wisdom, and how much he is deeply loved. He was so happy to read his books. 

      At the end of June, he passed away suddenly. 
      Family and friends gathered together to remember the amazing man, my grandfather. He overflowed with peace and joy. He made everyone feel like they were the most important person in the world. He was a blessing. 
He is missed and loved. 

      I am grateful to have so many wonderful memories of my grandfather.
