Heading today to Gatlinburg, TN for a four day writing retreat. Two of my writer’s group is going also. The only thing in Gatlinburg that we have on our agenda is Paula Deen’s new restaurant in Pigeon Forge, TN. I plan to sit out by the pool and rework the beginning of SEARCH FOR THE PRINCESS and try to complete the entire first draft of BASKETBALL BALLERINA. I think Lizzie needs some respect to be a finished product and reworked to a better middle grade novel.
Lily’s Lagniappe: Well LSU softball is the number 5 seed in the NCAA softball playoff and the regional and super regional can be played right there in Tiger Park in Baton Rouge. Here’s hoping that the Tiger girls can get it together and get it done. I’d love to see them in Oklahoma for the Girls Softball World Series. The LSU Baseball team is number one in the nation and swept Missouri yesterday. This weekend is their last weekend of the season. They will travel to Columbus, SC to finish the season. The following week will be the Baseball SEC tournament in Hoover, AL. GEAUX TIGERS!!!
