You can always reign yourself back in through the re-writing stage. I find, simply sitting down and starting to write without agenda opens my brain and gives permission to explore new ideas I hadn't developed or thought of before. Often I find ideas spilling out of me onto the page I had no idea were inside me. I also find that my best ideas come to me while I am doing other things...walking my two beagles at night while listening to Italian music or lying in bed reviewing the story in my head before I fall asleep. Countless times I get up in the middle of the night and start writing because ideas come to me in my unconscious state. It is important to get these ideas down and then refine them later.(less)

I think my first and most favorite however, would have to be Anne Sheridan and Gilbert Blythe from the "Anne of Green Gables" series. Through L. M. Montgomery's writing we follow the development of these characters from childhood to young adult to middle age and the ups and downs of their relationship.

I also have to mention that as a young girl I was also a fan of Natasha and Pierre of War & Peace and Scarlett and Rhet Butler of Gone with the Wind.

But hands down, I have always loved Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. I have to make contact with them at least once a year and re-read Pride and Prejudice. They are quite dear to me, after all! (less)

I thoroughly enjoyed “La Passione.” It reads like a primer of Italian art and culture—a compilation of stories—that spans the arc of time. In an almost Michener-esque way, the book begins with the formation of the peninsula when Italy was a “geologic ...more
