I confess… I’ve been dabbling in fiction writing between naps and playtime. It’s nice to have found something just for me; it’s a good way to exercise my adult brain instead of my mommy brain. So our activity of the day – finishing up the chalkboard wall. The big idea behind the chalkboard wall is that I can write out plot outlines. Won’t that be fun? Almost like installation word art.
I’ve never been a big fiction writer, but it’s so exciting to create characters and worlds. My brother-in-law Nick has gotten into creating scenes with me, and we’ve been scribbling the plot points out on pieces of papers. I think the chalkboard wall will make our brainstorming sessions even better. For now, it’s just for fun. But who knows. Maybe we’ll hit on a great story together!
Lunch, lunch. A yummy stir-fry:
In the mix:
I’ve always debated whether eggs should be scrambled before being added to the stir-fry or mixed it raw with the rice and then cooked – this time I mixed the eggs in, and man – it was tasty.
