My Writing Process

I was invited to participate in a writing process tour where I write about… writing.  Much thanks to Dabney Hedegard— the amazing author of “When God Intervenes” for inviting me to the tour.  The point of this tour (that was conceived by someone far more ambitious than me!) is to allow a bunch of overly wordy authors to write more than they already do and in the process maybe share a tiny glimmer of what the writer’s life is like.  So here goes: 1.What are you working on right now?
