The slump is over!

I set an "end date", at which point, I'd have to write--even if I wrote crap, even if I missed sleep to do it, no matter what.

When the end date arrived, I sat down at the keyboard, opened up a short story that had seriously stalled, and promised myself that I'd have it finished by the end of the week. I got it finished that day!

New goal: finish the first round of edits before 12am this Sunday.

And now for something completely different...a lullaby I wrote for my children.

Go to sleep, sweet child of mine.
Outside, stars twinkle and shine.
The moon hangs high up above,
And you're here, wrapped in my love.

Summer, winter, spring and fall,
I'll be here to hold you through them all.
Outside, stars twinkle and shine.
Go to sleep now, sweet child of mine.


  1. Congrats! I love when setting goals pays off. Also, I absolutely adore your lullaby.

  2. Thanks! I wish I could write music well enough to give the tune. It's based loosely on a song by Loreena McKinnett. :)

  3. Very beautiful lullaby :) I think it'd work for me too. :D

    I found you at the AW forums, I'm yoghurtelf there :)
