Spending the last couple of weeks rethinking the turn of events that catapult my protagonist into her new life have been rewarding. With the help of family and friends, who have given me new prompts and situations to consider, I have had a wonderful time brainstorming and letting things evolve. And now, I am in the process of weaving the changes into the storyline, into the new world that has been created, which I believe will make the story even better. It's exciting!

Spotted any snow fairies yet in the snowflakes or amongst the icicles?
It's snowing, reminding me of wondrous lands and far-off places. December snow is magical, the perfect time to let one's imagination soar. There's so much enchantment at this time of year.

The mesmerizing snowflakes are drifting with the breezes, alighting on my lawn, flitting through the trees, and fluttering, tumbling, and melting on sidewalks. Ah, me. What a day!
