E is for . . .


E is for Exaggerate, which is something I always do. Well . . . almost always.

E is for edit, which is something I cant not do.

E is also for Endings.

Since right now I know more about beginning a novel than ending one, I’m having a mild emotional meltdown. Will I ever make it to the middle, much less the end of a novel? 

E is for excuses. The sun was in my eyes, is the classic Little Leaguers excuse for missing the pop fly.  I probably have as many variations on this classic whine as there are freckles on a redhead.

Finally, E is for Easter. My savior Christ suffered as I dothough he was innocent and I am notbut then He defeated death, rose from the tomb, and yet lives. 

The Son is in my eyes! I see; therefore, I write.

    1. Our middle daughter invaded the ranks of "boys" Little League in the 1980s. Her team won the championship that year, a scenario that would make as good a movie as Bad News Bears!
