Another snow day....or rather another snowy day
Freya carries in a blanket of snow. I try to grab her with a big towel before she shakes.
Writing this morning before school. Going to try to hop on the trainer for a bit, too.
Rafi and Maddie, the characters in the novel I'm working on, have me hooked and all I want to do is write, but then comes a little thing like school.
Rafi is a Muslim and Maddie has grown up in a conservative Christian home. They are both fighting the frac-sand minds, and they fall in love. They're smart, so of course they talk about their religions. I'm worried about too much "talkiness" sometimes, but I guess I will have to read the whole thing aloud and see. It's sort of pouring onto the page.
All I want to do is write. I already said that.
Yes, this is the novel where both kids go to St. Peter High School.
