Right now, I am probably snuggled up under a blanket, writing furiously, surrounded by piles of picture books. Maybe I'm sipping a slurp-worthy Italian mocha with my fluffy little bichon frise beside me. I could be walking through the woods behind my house -- if it's four o'clock, I am definitely there because my dog is on a timer that goes off every day at 4 pm. He looks at me with those eager eyes and wiggles and whimpers until I get the leash and say, "Are you ready?"
Good writing takes a lot of practice, a lot of erasing and scribbling and maybe even some crumpling of paper and frowning and stomping! But in the end, seeing a story burst forth from your imagination to the page is worth the wait! Just like my bichon baby, Fitzwilliam Darcy, sometimes I have to wait for the timer in my head to go off and say, "It's ready!"
