Call Me Nosey Rosey

This revision I'm working on means more research, with a capital R. But I'm not really complaining because I ascribe to Zora Neale Hurston's definition:

"Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose."

Thanks to all who sent encouraging words about the big job ahead of me. I surely do appreciate the cheerleading.

And, I'll probably need more.


  1. Luckily poking and prying are things we writers do with easily and with glee. For my new, post-Meggy book, I have to go interact with a pig. Good luck to both of us.

  2. My grandfather said pigs were the smartest animals -- and he was never wrong!

    Don't you love having a valid excuse for being nosy?
