But in my experience, sitting down at the same time and place every day is important. You may stare at the computer for an hour, stare out the window, but just sit for the allotted time -- and it can be 15 minutes if that's all you can spare. Don't be hard on yourself, just try to be there, try to be listening, when the words and images do start flowing again. (less)

Busy, busy, busy...

Wow, it's been a busy couple of weeks.  I spent several days signing copies of my latest book, Dream of Night, at the World Equestrian Games (WEG) in Lexington, Kentucky.  People from all over the world traveled to Lexington to participate in many different equestrian events.  I signed books at both the Joseph-Beth Bookseller booth and the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation.  I also traveled to Ci Read more of this blog post »

“Sometimes you don't know you'll miss a place until you're gone.”
Heather Henson, Making the Run

“Come here, Cal," she says real gentle, and I come close.
Read me something."
I open up the book I'm holding, a new one brought this very day. Just chicken scratch, I used to figure, but now I see what's truly there, and I read a little out.
That's gift enough," she says, and smiles so big, it makes me smile right back.”
Heather Henson, That Book Woman

“It's like she looks at me and only sees what she wants to see. My father looks at me and sees only what he wants me to be.”
Heather Henson, Making the Run

What first pick for a Newbery Honor?


(I tried to include all the books we have read, along with the books mentioned on our "the others good and up" thread, and a few on the Newbery 2010 list on goodreads. If, however, I have not included a book you want to vote for just send me a message or write a comment. I will add it to the list.)
