Q:  It’s 10pm and I’m sitting at the kitchen table…do I know where my children are?

A:  Yup…Jordi is playing League of Legends on the computer, and Roman is at a sleep over.  I guess that means that, technically, I don’t know exactly where Roman is…but I trust the Mom in charge, so I’ll call it good.  Grin. 
Q:  What books are on my ping pong table?
A:  On the Banks of Plum Creek, by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  I’m so glad Jordi has finally discovered her wonderful stories!
So, I logged into my email and saw a post from one of the women in the Artist Trust EDGE Program.  Following the link, I found myself at David Farland’s website, and….if you love straight-up, excellent and direct writing advice and suggestions…I think you’ll like what he’s offering.
You can find many of his articles here:   http://www.davidfarland.net/
First…check out David’s own story, then scroll to the bottom and find the several journal entries titled:  David Farland’s Kick in the Pants!
