|Research Notes and Sundry Journals|
I mentioned in my last post that I'd been scouring old wire-bound notebooks for research and thoughts related to the Awen series. Today I graduated to my journals from 2012, the year it was hatched. Only then the working title was Blessed Are the Peace Makers.
Holy moly. Talk about gen-u-ine, grade-A finds. And not just book-related.
Suffice it to say that I am glowing from the inside out, pleased with what I find on these pages. I am a writer, through and through. And no one reading my words, today or a hundred years from now, would guess otherwise.
And damn, 2012 was a gigantic year for personal growth. And I'm only a few months in.
