seriously, this year is moving too fast!
i spent part of january teaching at vermont college of fine arts. this was my second winter residency and, again, the campus looked absolutely beautiful covered in all that snow... and ice! these residencies are so inspiring; they're just what a writer needs to recharge the creative battery (so to speak!)
after the residency, i had a short trip and some school visits, and now it's february 1st and it's time for me to turn my attention back to my middle-grade-novel-in-progress. because time is flying and my deadline is fast approaching!
which reminds me of my favorite quote from douglas adams:
"i love deadlines. i like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by."
