Novel Thinking

To write a novel is writing, just like writing a short story.  Or so I thought.  Truth of the matter is, I'm going to have to think differently to make progress on the novel.  So be it.  I have to back up a little bit and train my mind to think long, instead of short.  I have to expand my vision and reach deeper and wider and broader.  I have been able to learn the mechanics of short stories, so this is the same idea, learn the mechanics.  Delight a little in the bigger playground.  Reach.  Grow.  Go forward. 
This year the tulips look a little sparse, but as they multiply they will fill in. 
Like a novel will, as I give it time and attention. 
Thanks for the tulip bulbs and the friendship and support, Linda.
