It’s the story that taught me to write; I felt so strongly about it that I rewrote it over and over and over, for years, until I learned the skills. It had almost 100 rejections before being published. It was published by three different publishers: Stabenfeldt, Scholastic, and now, Enchanted […]

But I’ll try… I’m sitting on the seawall of a Caribbean beach; not a fancy resort beach, but a public beach in the […]

Shackles On, Shackles Off

I was so impressed by an exercise from “Steering by Starlight”, by Martha Beck, that I just had to share. Fair warning: you may want to read this exercise in her book as well, since I’m explaining my understanding of it, which may be different from what she intended.
