What do you get for Christmas when you’re a good children’s writer? Fortunately, I live among people who know me well.
My husband gave me the Women of NASA Lego set. I’ve wanted this one ever since it was first announced. I wrote about all but one of these women.
My niece gave me bookends that look like antique typewriters. These are going to go in my office as soon as I clean off three more shelves and can hang my new bookshelves.
My friend gave me a pair of leggings that look like a star-filled night sky. I’ll be wearing them to yoga so that my back is healthy and allows me to spend time at the computer writing.
And my brother-in-law gave me an idea for a new story. He recently went to a talk on bees and the urban environment and just how unique our own area is where these little flying honey-making wonders are concerned. I’ve got to look for a book that was recently published but this is pretty timely and hopeful so it is definitely something that I want to look into.
I hope that you’ve all taken a few days to rest, recharge and prepare to write well into 2018. And, with that in mind, I have a Lego set to assemble.
