When I woke up feeling guilty, I went to my computer and decided to update my library hold list. I'm not comfortable if I don't have at least 15 books on hold. I thought I would cruise the recommendations for middle school books, since that is who my story is about. Reading through the synopsis blurbs I realized that I still hadn't boiled my book down to the essential, you-want-to-read-me pitch. Could I do it?
Funny thing on the way to the synopsis, I started having spurts of muse. She was back and I began to feel the energy of my idea cough, sputter and rev-up again. Damn, I feel so good I might even do a sit-up or two. (Well... maybe, no commitment on that.)
