Ten in 2010

It's that time again! Sharpen those pencils to try your hand at 10 word stories. Since I've been deep in a revision, I will confess that my brain is tapped out. I can barely put one word in front of another.

So today is Wild Card day. You get to pick your own word. Next month, I promise, I'll have something more specific to offer (feel free to offer ideas!). But today, it's all yours. Take it away! My ten-worder is inspired by the fact that I still wish I could go back and edit books that have already been published. The urge to revise is eternal!

*The End

The end isn't ever. . .*


  1. Librarians

    Welcome authors
    (in books and in person) -
    open readers' eyes.

    Can you tell I'm on the road doing school visits?

  2. What a lovely tribute, Elaine! And so true. Safe travels.

  3. It was a terrific trip, Kirby - four wonderful schools in Omaha. And now I'm finishing the last chapters of the new novel's first draft. I'm determined to finish the book by the end of the week so I can give it to my critique group next Tuesday!

  4. Here is my attempt after attending the SCBWI Western WA conference.
