To Catch a Dream: Words in Flight

It's finished!   
In January I jumped.  I signed up for The Fiction Project and set about the task of making this little book.  On my morning walks with my Labradors, words would flutter about my head.  I jotted down these morning words and phrases when ever I found a moment. 
When the blank black journal arrived in the mail, it took over a month to get the courage to start.  I had to make a conscientious decision to just play, and I finally dove in.  
Finding the time to "play" was difficult.  I had to give myself permission to enter into this creative world and play.  I pretended to be a real artist... a real writer... creating away in my art studio.  
 And on these days I was free.

The Fiction Project in Flight

It's quiet here on this blog.  I've been busy working on The Fiction Project.  Trying anyway, to carve out the time in the flurry of spring art show, middle school musical scenery, field trips, Confirmation, graduation, 2 proms! 
My theme... In Flight.  Titled, To Catch a Dream: Words in Flight.  Deadline approaching!  Hoping the words fluttering about my head will settle on the page!  Praying for more hours in the day.
