4/27/09 — Another wonderful week of school visits under my belt. Both Troutdale, Oregon and Baltimore, Maryland were a treat, filled with great kids and educators. Jotted down some fun ideas in my notebook, too, material that will almost certainly make its way into future work. As I always tell aspiring writers, be observant, there are so many possibilities out there if you just pay attention.
Today begins a nice two week stint at home before I take off again. I’m using the time to finish — I hope — the rewrite of STORM MOUNTAIN. Good progress so far. Stay tuned . . .
