Best laid plans….
So you know that half hour thing? Didn’t work today. Long visit with my Mom-in-law, and lots of time hanging out on the floor with my son. All good, but no writing, no yoga. And still no danged rejection letter from Levine Books! The wait is torture!
So I’m thinking…how about this for an idea…
Little girl thinks she can’t do anything right cause Mom is on her case for all the little things…(hmm…sound familiar? They say to write about what you know.) Well, then the viewpoint shifts to Mom, who is always noticing the good things, but girl doesn’t see it….that doesn’t seem right somehow.
Maybe what’s coming out of Mom’s mouth and what little girl hears are different due to perspective. A lesson book in listening to each other?? Hearing what’s actually being said instead of hearing what you assume will be said? Could be interesting if I could pull it off.
