"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


Silly, I Know...

This post is part of Patty Wysong's 
 A to Z meme. This week's letter is "S."
 A to Z blog hop at Patterings.
...But I had a hard time coming up with a good topic for the letter S. You see, I've been super busy (like the rest of you LOL), and since this is a holiday week (not only Thanksgiving, but a couple family birthdays here!), I considered skipping. It's certainly allowed. But then I looked back over my blog archives and saw that, in the three (or is it four) times my soul sister Peejers has run this meme (rhymes with cream), I have NEVER done every single letter. Gonna change that THIS time, Lord willing.

So, I'm not stopping.

I considered writing about the sales going on today for Black Friday (but decided against it, because I have absolutely no plans to attend any of them). I could have blogged about my stuffy nose - but not only is that kinda gross, but hopefully by the time you read this, it will be a distant memory! Santa also entered my mind, but I really don't have much to say about the guy in the suit. Could have written about my success in PiBoIdMo (as of Wednesday, 45 picture book ideas - only 30 required to "win") - but I think I've talked that to death on here.
One more plug ;)

The other idea - the one that stuck in my mind the longest - was to write about my family - the Sher family. But I've kinda been doing that all along, and there's enough about me on here, so I stuffed that idea back in my head where it belonged. Sorry if that one sounded good! (If you have questions, go ahead and ask in the comments!)

So, this is what you get. Stuff.

Wait - that's it! My topic! For me, S is for Stuff. Woohoo! ;)

(And just in case you are concerned, I already know what my T post will be about - so no more babbling on - at least not next week!)

So, what kind of stuff did you come up with for S?
