Where've I Been

Not writing, I can tell you. But that has changed as I've discovered a new angle for my middle grade story, Isabelle's Garden (which actually turns out to be a chapter book). Even though there is some tension and conflict in the story I always felt it could use more. I couldn't quite put my finger on it until I got some advice from a seasoned professional who kindly took a look at what I'd done so far. It was so simple, of course, I kicked myself for not seeing it before. I'm not going to let the cat out of the bag just yet but I'm ecstatic that I can breathe new life into this story that I've loved for so long.

I've also got to get up the nerve to send my pb back out into the world. It's only been rejected twice. I'm sure there's a home for it out there.
