Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

Writing on School Bus Windows

Just thinking:

Summer is soon coming to a close. Children will be starting back to school. It makes me think of backpacks, new school clothes and school buses. With these thoughts in mind, do you ever wonder why kids write on the foggy windows of school buses?

At first, you see them with their faces pressed up against the glass, steaming up the window with their warm breath. Quickly, they draw something in the foggy mist; it’s like finger painting! Written in a cloud are pictures, ideas and funny sayings. For a fleeting moment they have shared what’s on their mind. Children can create out of a mist, clear it away and create again.

So, as summer rolls away and I see all those school buses rolling by, I will think of those children on the school buses and their drawings on the windows; and hope I can create something new out of my foggy mind and put it on paper.

Submitted and waiting

I have submitted one of my picture books to an Agent. Now, I wait and write some more...
