Driving is often empty thought time. I pay attention to the road and all it’s extraneous conditions but the creative side of my brain wonders. I have no control over that wild side.
My first children’s book is about the ills of littering. So, when I’m asked to sign a sold copy I usually include instructions to ‘Always enjoy the view.’
I am currently constructing my next children’s book with pictures of color in nature. There is a beautiful photograph for the front cover- a true Texas theme. Unfortunately, my head is still empty for a synopsis for the back cover.
About twenty miles south of Henderson two words popped up as thoughts “step outside.” I don’t know where thoughts come from. Their appearance always catches me by surprise.
“OK. So what.”
“Enjoy the view.” I chuckled Already had that one in my repertoire.
“What you see, is up to you.”
Cool! That’s it-the back cover.
- “Step Outside
- Enjoy the view.
- What you see
- Is up to you.”
‘Nature’s Gifts’ to be released this spring is complete.
Now my only problem is forecasted by the next road sign; Henderson 16.
I gotta remember my newly created little ditty for 16 miles? Repeat, repeat, repeat.
The first lit parking lot, a Kroger grocery store became a writing sanctuary.
I even managed to get home before midnight with the paper copy of the back cover in my pocket. I love it when a plan comes together.
