I wrote my writer-friend Susan today with my concern over this case of writer's block I am dealing with (well, it's not so much that I'm not writing but that what I am writing feels so sluggish and boring...it's taken me five pages to get to any mention of last weekend's events in Hermosa Beach). My favorite part of her response:
Write! And tell your inner critic, "thanks for sharing, go color in the corner and be quiet."
In the meantime, a favorite memory from last weekend: Courtney's excitement at our trip to Trader Joe's.
