Words that are Speaking to Me

It begins with character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does.

Unhurried. Finding the magic in the middle of living. Capturing a life of ridiculous grace + raw stories.

  1. Rocks don’t walk–just kidding!! So, I just have to get that one character going, and I think it might be a mouse!!!!! I woke up this morning thinking about “the story!”


  2. Love the quote (you always find good ones). It’s so interesting to me how characters come into a writer’s head and become real. Holding on to them, let alone following them around must be quite a challenge!
