In the Zone

            Writing is interesting.  I know, duh, of course it’s interesting or nobody would do it.  What I mean is you have all these ideas popping into your brain and you have to attempt to pick out one or two that, if you’re lucky, will morph into a story.  Hopefully a good one. 

Writing is one of the most interesting and satisfying things I have ever attempted.  It's also difficult, exasperating, and all consuming, but I love it and can't wait to sit down in front of my computer and put my ideas to paper. 

            I am, as stated previously (several times in fact), working on Visions of Mortality, #2 in the Visions series, but I've been hijacked by a story that I have to get out of my brain before I can get back to Larita, Shelby, and friends. 

Tentatively entitled The Whispering of Trees, this narrative is the story of Aggie, a happy sixteen-year-old living in the small town of Barrow Alaska, whose life is shattered when something unspeakable happens to her not long after her sixteenth birthday.  She gives in to despair, thinking herself incapable of surviving the life-altering consequences, until an unexpected source of love and understanding encourages her to dig deep and discover untapped reserves of courage.

I will keep you posted on my progress and to those readers who liked Visions of You (thank you!) and are patiently awaiting Visions of Mortality, please bear with me, I’m typing as fast as I can.
