    I cannot wait to read this. My Sweetheart is a bookworm too, so guess what he is getting for Christmas! Stephanie, you are an inspiration. I have been working on a children’s book for several years and already have an idea for another one, but I have allowed fear to stop me from pursuing this adventure. I think I will pull it out and finish it during my break! See you on Sunday!

    You’re an inspiration, Steph. With regards to your writer’s group: Go for it. I’ve witnessed how much fun the writer’s group up here has, especially during NaNoWriMo, and I think you’d enjoy it.

    Not to mention, it sure lights a fire under all of those authors to have other authors knocking out pages right next to them.
