I originally wrote a draft of my Elf story in 2008 after learning that I had cancer. I wrote all 300+ pages in 2 months because I had never told my children about the story. I especially wanted my grandchildren to know it.
Now I'm about in the middle of the rewrites and my heroine has just gotten to a place where no matter what she does, it seems that things prevent her from getting her people safely to their new home.
There is a song by Tenth Avenue North called Worn. This song especially inspires me because so much of what is in it is also in my story, amazingly. I think its also a great time to reflect on such things with Easter nearly here.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and enjoy God's creation as spring is beginning to bloom here in the Blue Ridge. ;)
