Today was exciting. I skipped my weight watchers meeting and slept in until after nine. My creative writing class with Jeanette Bakto was very informative. We had several small assignments that helped us to define our characters. Writing children’s books just come naturally to me but the mystery novel really needs polishing. I need to say, “Her smile lit up the room like Fourth of July Fireworks” instead of “She grinned.” After the writing class I went to the public library and spoke with the librarian in charge of the summer children’s program. I showed her a few of my books and she is going to let me come in the summer and read to the children. I am so excited.
