A Summer Break
After sending off the revisions of an adult nonfiction book, I changed gears and worked on fiction this summer. I needed a break from research and fact checking, from bibliographies and interviews. I wanted to go somewhere where I was in total control. I created the characters, invented the setting, made up the dialogue, and carved out my own plot line. But as September nears, I'm ready again to dig into another nonfiction project. I need to learn something, dig up new material, and envision a fresh slant. I can't wait!!
