I am posting from sunny Florida, on the last day of the Florida Writers' Association Conference. Normally, I would be sending the participants in this blog challenge an email reminder of this upcoming week's theme and the three odd-numbered days on which we'll all be posting - October 21, 23, and 25.
However, I foolishly forgot to bring my list of all your email addresses - it is sitting on my computer desktop at home. So I hope you are all checking in and will see this, and I will send an email as soon as I get home on Oct. 23. Sorry about that.
This week's theme for Week 4 is: Roots and Wings. Memories/poems/pictures of home, of leaving or finding it, and/or of travel or journeys or changes. Where we have come from and where we are going: A theme that is often rich in imagery and emotion.
Oh, and since this is my last post for the week of secrets, here's one: It's something that you are going to be the first to know. Last night, at the Florida Writers' Association's Awards Dinner, my novel, the Sorrow Stone, won first prize in the Historical Fiction, unpublished, category. You can read the first chapter on the page, Historical Fiction, on this website.
I hope you agree with the judges' decision!
