Hi Rachel :)

I currently live in China, but when I'm home in NZ on holiday, I try to fit visits in as much as I can. I return to NZ in 2016 (yay!!) and I'm hoping to fit many more visits into my schedule :)

Thanks for asking.

I have a few little tricks I use...

1. Do a task that doesn't take much concentration, so your mind can wander...my favorites are taking a shower and going for a walk
2. Chat with other people about it. I usually pick my husband (poor guy), but just being able to talk the story problem out aloud usually helps me solve it, or he'll give me a simple little suggestion that will open up a new cavity in my mind and unlock a plethora of story options.

Thanks for asking :D(less)

“The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
Robert Frost

“i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)”
E.E. Cummings

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
Emily Dickinson

Thanks so much for telling me how much you enjoyed Betwixt. I'm so glad :) I'm not even sure how I'd go about getting Betwixt translated into Spanish, but I will ask around. That could be a fun project for the future :) Thanks for the idea.
