My Latest Obsession and Me
I wrote probably five or six sentences today, spread over two different projects. I did do some journal work relating to things I hope to write in the future, but real work...five or six sentences.
This reminds me of the movie The Hours, which I was talking about yesterday. I so relate to Virginia Woolf as she was portrayed in that movie--inept at housekeeping (she couldn't manage her help; if I had household help I would make them coffee and buy them doughnuts every day)and taking forever to squeeze out a sentence or two. Plus one morning she went for a walk, to which her husband said something like, "I wish I could just go for a walk in the middle of the day." Tomorrow I'm supposed to go for an eight-mile hike. Not that anyone will complain, but people would be justified if they did.
Oh, well. Enough whining.

The Golden Duck Awards are given for excellence in children's science fiction literature. I had some trouble figuring out what group sponsors this award, but it also seems to sponsor some kind of kid science fiction conference.
Then I heard about America Writes for Kids is a project that collects and organizes children's author websites by state so that kids and teachers can find local writers.
