Another beautiful day at the beach. Thank you Jesus–and Happy Easter!
The above is a water color by Patti Blacknight. Patti is the owner of The Mermaid’s Purse in Surf City and a very talented artist. She does some funky stuff with what is called Steam Punk–anyway–Patti is designing Poseidon, a sort of character in THE MERMAID DID IT. I’m now 1/3 of the way through my little mystery–hoping it will be ready by the end of July. Lev, Don, Paula, Carrie, and some more good guys and bad folk are turning out to make this one hell of a story. FUN, FUN, FUN!
QUOTE: “If you presume to love something, you must love the process of it much more than you love the finished product” John Irving.
WRITING TIP: I think Mr. Irving is correct– I do love the writing process, it takes me to another land. The idea of never going there again is unimaginable. I love what I get to do–and though I’m rarely wholly satisfied with the end product, it is so worth the journey.
