"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

Turning It Off

I'm over at the Internet Cafe' today, talking about some of the distractions I had to deal with when I was trying to write my novel last month - and how the most significant one was more spiritual than anything. Hope you'll stop by and check out my post "Turn It Off."

Yet, though I'm there, I'm not - really. Why? It's that time again - and I'm VERY glad. (and what an appropriate title for my cafe post, eh?)

Yup - the first Tuesday of the month is my monthly tech fast - no computer and no texting. I'll be having a date morning with my hubby, and will probably do some cleaning (our pantry is kinda scary at the moment). If you're thinking about a break from that computer of yours, I REALLY cannot recommend it more highly. It has done WONDERS for me.

See ya on Wednesday!
