My New Earth work is actually on twiiter.com/BookClubClass It's a text messaging book club. In case you came here from the Oprah website and were wondering where it all is. I'll bring my New Earth Work over here because, I guess this is where it's meant to be. Welcome to Jippyjabber! PS I am auntjippy on the Oprah message boards.

Now I know why I have this idea of writing ...
Sometimes being with Zach is like being a life gaurd. I can sit for hours and watch his breathing or just make sure he isn't hurting himself but biting on a cold rag that I give him.
I think in pictures so I just see my story as movies in my head. Lately, I had a breakthrough and let my past experieces into my movie. I am getting used to it. Just when I was ready to give myself a break from being frustrated with my writing goals...... the truth is revealed. I need this, I need this movie to play in my head and I need to think it's more than just a coping mechanism.

AHA!

Hey there, it's great that you see a story like a movie in your head. I always see mine like piles and piles of tangled up words that I need to scribble down real fast. Your way sounds concise and clear. Good luck.

Movies in the head is great. I keep telling people I see pictures, which kind of sounds like I'm loco, which might be accurate.
