P.S. Best of luck with your book series, Karen. For me, writing is like have a tooth pulled. Photography, on the other hand, is like breathing.

I always used to think it would be fun to write a book. My middle daughter has written three...and now I see that it is very hard to get them to sell if you don't have an agent! I keep hoping that someday she will be blessed with someone wonderful to promote her books!

Happy Saturday!

I usually write for the sake of writing. :-)

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

This was interesting. I write because I need to. It just feels necessary.

So you're writing a book! Is it illustrated? Maybe you can show us some excerpts sometime. And although it would be nice to get some money out of it, I think the joy of creation is also very important.

I didn't know you were writing books - awesome! Not surprising, though, I've always enjoyed the words that go along with your pictures. Congrats and good luck!
