little painting

Look at the little painting Jim did for me for Mother's Day. I love it so much!

And that is my incredibly wordy blog post for this evening. I am so tired. Won't be getting any late-night writing done tonight, sigh. At least I had a good morning writing at my cafe. I realized yesterday that the last chapter I had written was taking things in the wrong direction, so I rewrote it with a cool new idea and it fell into place so much better. You know how sometimes you suddenly realize something about your w.i.p. and then feel like a dolt for not having recognized it sooner? It just seems so obvious? It was one of those moments. A true "duh" moment. Oh well, better late than never.

Cheers!

That is beautiful! What a wonderful gift.

what a cool painting and it looks so much like your style of art rather than what I've seen of Jim's? weird. He must truly be your soulmate :)

Good luck with the WIP!

Such a great Mother's day painting. Perfect! I am really excited today because I just got back from the library with Both Of Your Books! (I am still on the waiting list for Lips Touch.) Every time I go into Barnes and Noble I ask about your books, but they don't carry them here, so I thought, hmmmmm. How about the Library? And now they are in my house!! I am so excited to read them! Now, I just need to wait for a big chunk of time...soon!

What an awesome and magical present!
I have to say, at least you knew where you were going with the w.i.p. and fixed it. I had a brilliant solution for one sticky revision recently and have since completely forgotten it.

Kelly Rae mentioned your support for her creative process in her ecourse that I am taking, Flying Lessons. So cool to realize, "I know Laini! " from SCBWI conferences! I'm the one with long white/gray/blond hair.
