Inspirational Quote of the Week
This is where it all begins. Everything starts here, today.
2016 is a bright new year filled with hope and promise. After I recovered from all the celebrations…
…I prepped myself for my first steps into the 365 days ahead of me.
Actually 366 days, since it’s a leap year. Leaping is something I love to do. I’m such a tiny girl, leaping makes me feel big and powerful.
Mom is starting off the year right with a story revision that she’s been doing for a few weeks, now. Her writing group gave her tons of good suggestions for ways to make her story better.
She took things out, added things in, and moved things around. She used more words to show action, fewer words to make a punchier ending, and new words to say things in a more precise and fun way.
When Mom sent her story back to Rate Your Story, they gave it a score of 2…
…AND gave her a couple more ideas for fixing it. A 2 is a big improvement from the 5 the story had the first time it was judged.
I’m pretty sure Mom would have done some leaping of her own, if she could. But that’s what she has me for, after all…
