On, In, and Around Mondays: Rumors • Sneak Peek

sonia beach

If you'd like to see a sneak peek of Rumors of Water: Thoughts on Creativity and Writing, and the final cover (photo by Claire Burge and floral designs by my little girl Sonia), stop by this quiet place.

And thank you to everyone who shared thoughts and support, from the beginning of the whole writing process, right on through the discussions of the cover. I appreciate your love.


On, In and Around Mondays (which partly means you can post any day and still add a link) is an invitation to write from where you are. Tell us what is on, in, around (over, under, near, by...) you. Feel free to write any which way... compose a tight poem or just ramble for a few paragraphs. But we should feel a sense of place. Would you like to try? Write something 'in place' and add your link below.

If you could kindly link back here when you post, it will create a central meeting place. :)

I'm excited to read your book because your insights, style, and honesty not only pull me into your world but also help me to see mine through a different lens.

If I could do those parenting years over again, I would add consistent writing to the artistic world I created for my two children.

The richness of what you share, as one who is passing through this phase, will greatly impact women but especially speak to the heart of those who balance both worlds of creativity and parenting.

Just back to say those floral designs by Sonia are incredible! And I am hooked by the first chapter...this mom of unruly boys, trying to eek out space to write and raise. Love the first (small) chapter!

it is beautiful, and the link is enticing -- I'll be buying the book!!!

I've been there. Continue to be there. continue to not be there. It is, like water, a constant flowing outward to the sea and into the sea.

And Sara's drawings are lovely.

So, if the water was just rumored, did you drink lemonade instead? ;-)

Love all of it and I'm excited for when I get to hold it in my grubby little paws.
