I know bald-faced procrastination when I see it.
I have two writing groups next week and I need to get my short story in better shape, so when my friend told me that her 5-year-old still remembered me from a trip to the balloon fiesta TWO years ago, I knew that I had to write a balloon story for him. How could I not?
What do I know about hot air balloons? Not much. What do I know about writing for kids? Even less. Hello, Wikipedia and Cat in the Hat.
Also, you know that Matrix trick where you can download a talent? I’ll need that for illustrating if you don’t mind.
