column: Observances Arrive With Dog Days

I've been on a tear with my new YA mystery manuscript, "Red is For Ick" (Haven't heard back from Whiskey Creek Press on edits for "Storm Chaser"). After being clobbered over the head by my muse I tore apart the last few chapters, and I'm in the midst of putting them back together into something that will have a bit more action, and extra surprises. Yesterday I worked on it at the Indiana University/Purdue University library while Emily was in class, and apparently being surrounded by all those books was inspiring: I wrote obout 2,500 words in the course of an hour and a half.
