The Most Interesting Thing: Bird by Bird

“Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.” 
― Anne LamottBird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
This week I start round two of edits for Ace (he says he's too busy hunting gummy worms to be bothered to work on his novel.) Since Isafella is taking care of the birdwatching, I should have plenty of time to meet the challenge.

When faced with a deadline, I take Anne Lamott's simple but brilliant advice. I will edit one feather, one beak, one wing at a time.

To help me meet my deadline, I'm participating in Denise Jaden's Writing, Reading, Blogging Challenge--March Madness. Last year I revised the same book I'm working on this year and a little over six months later, IT SOLD! If you're looking for a boost this month, please sign up over at Denise's blog--state your goal(s) and watch loads of encouragement envelope you at check-ins each day. There are great PRIZES, too! Wednesday check-ins will be right here!

Join the March Madness!
Or watch birds.
Your choice.


  1. Very cool that your book was a March Madness project! :D

    Looking forward to all the awesome madness....

  2. Somebody gave me a copy of that Lamott book last year. Hmmm... who was that?

    BTW, is Isafella a dude cat?

  3. Can I do both? Birdwatch and join in the madness? Multi-tasking is usually how I roll. Hope the edits are going well!!

    1. Birds are a great distraction. Kinda like Twitter. . .

  4. Kind of fun to read of all the March Madness success stories!

  5. Best on meeting your deadline :)My cats wish I'd buy some birds.
