Writing happens anytime and anywhere. That's one of my favorite things about writing --inspiration comes from daily life and oddball experiences. And you can never guess where you'll be when an idea strikes. Even at a Pittsburgh Steelers football game with one of my adorable assistants.
Nine times out of ten I hear something my grandchildren say and as soon as it comes out of their mouths I can hear the potential picture book it can become. "There are rocks in my ruffles," or "Nana, this tree looks like a butt!"
And the questions they have are even better. Do hippos have hair? Do toads have toes? Can giraffe chew gum? I am continuously inspired by my favorite little humans.
(Or hoomans, as my sweet grandson likes to say.)
I am also working on a few commercial fiction novels for readers that prefer text with no pictures. Once I figure out if the plots blend as smoothly as they do in my imagination, I can finally get them closer to submission and publication.
Focusing on one manuscript at a time is definitely not one of my strengths. But I consistently have a good time in all of my confusion.
