What happens when you give up internet for the summer? For a laptop junkie like me, it meant reopening the door to my imagination. Staring at the blank screen...no Facebook, no Twitter, no online shopping...just me, and a story that had been brewing for years.
The best part, which I never expected, is how it became a fun adventure with my children. They would wake up in the morning, as if it were Christmas, anxious to see the gift that arrived while they were asleep. Their enthusiasm was encouraging, and their reactions were priceless, as I unwrapped the storyline for them... chapter by chapter.
Three months later, we had a novel on our hands...and a good one too!
So now what?
