So there’s this unresolved question about what’s in Vangie’s old knapsack. And the homeschooling lesson about Acadia is too long. I’ve been working on the knapsack scene for the past hour. I’ve figured out what’s in it, and why Vangie wants it hidden, but my dialogue isn’t so good. I’ll wrestle with it today. Meanwhile, my editor wants me to trim Lucy’s lesson on Acadia way down. I struggled with this request, as I really got into researching Vangie’s roots, using my own Acadian history as a backdrop. She suggests that I take it and place it on this blog, for readers who are interested. First I have to cut the lesson down, and this will be hard for me, because I’m quite attached to every word. Darn. So while you all are going about your day, hopefully in the sunshine, I’ll be hacking, chopping, and adding new growth. No sign of round two edits on Vinehart Farm, so I can stay totally focused on Evangeline. In fact, my second job is coming to an end, so I’ll have more time to work on both of my books, which means that they’ll find their way into your hands that much sooner!
Enjoy your day,
