Daily Handbasket: Stone Angels

Precious and inspiring.


What does a writer do the day after she sells her latest book to a publisher? Why, she gets back to work, of course.

I just finished drafting a 10K word gothic story. (No, I didn’t do it all in a day this time!) The title is Stone Angels. At least it is for now…I actually wrote it in about ten days, which makes it kind of a quick project. Now must edit and polish up.

The photo was taken at the Cincinnati Art Museum, one of my fave travel-to museums. Do you have any travel plans this summer? I’d love to hear!

(Oh, and if you missed yesterday’s big news, you can read the details right here.) Thank you for all the lovely wishes !

    This marble angel is exquisite, Laura, and keep dancing ( the Angels are dancing, too). A new draft??? HM, you are both my inspiration and cause for a personal CHECK Point,— I need to start writing.

      Finished editing today, and it’s off with my First Reader.

      Don’t let anything stop you from following your writing dream! Even 15 minutes a day will move you along…
