Introducing Lauri's Stories!


Ahhh, isn't the new blog header better?  The old one was so...moody.  And I really am not moody, unless I drop my ice cream cone or something.  And even then, I am more mad than moody.   I'm more like a kid on a swing enjoying a lovely fall day.

A new name too!   Your Imagination is the Limit was too ethereal.  And I really am not ethereal, unless I haven't had coffee yet.  And even then, I am more incoherent than ethereal.  I'm more like a clumsy spider not realizing I'm flying on a kite.
The energy goes snap, crackle, pop when I open up my blog now!   Surrounding yourself with inspiring images is important.  

The life of the new writer can be overwhelming - blogging, building a platform, writing picture book manuscripts, being sucked into twitterverse, exploring genres, outlining the plot for a middle grade story, developing the craft, reading constantly.

Sanity requires knowing the action items to reach your goals.  You can't meet every goal tomorrow, but you can get one thing done today.  And something done tomorrow.   And before you know it you have accomplished more than you thought possible.  

This week I accomplished a new blog header!  Who knows what tomorrow will bring?  

P.S.  Thanks to Gail Kushner who suggested the name.  I tried to think of others, but "Lauri's Stories" was too stuck in my head.  I hope it gets stuck in your head too.

  1. Such cute artwork!

    Thanks for the shout-out about the name. I'm glad you liked it.

    Now, we need to see some light-hearted story ideas or ruminations to match the kid-centric header. Or something about how you write "Lauri's Stories." I know, I know, my suggestions create a lot of work for you! You're doing so delightfully well, I can't keep my ideas to myself. :)

    1. Y'know Gail my horoscope said something about a mentor in an unusual package...I'm not saying you are unusually packaged, but I think I'll have to listen to your advice!

    1. I want to "pimp my nook" too, but it is just a little nook right now :) I may need to take over the guest room. Please post your new decorations on your site so we can all enjoy them.
