OLIVE GREEN AND CRIMSON is a 5x7 pastel on PastelBord. Bidding begins at $100.
I sometimes have a burning desire to write, with no idea what to write about. That's how it is at 12:45 a.m. right now. I'd love to write something poignant. Or funny. Or even just interesting. But nothing comes to mind.
I have had a burning desire to write a children's book since I was a kid. I want to create another world to escape to. If it's ever to happen, it better happen soon. My mother was an English major (which probably explains why all of my siblings and I are grammar nazis). She and I used to toy with the idea of her writing a book, and me illustrating it. For her birthday one year, I gave her a suede notebook. I waited for months for her book to take form. One day she showed me the first sentence. I loved the first sentence and couldn't wait for the rest of the book. But mom was sick, and the story never got any further.
I want to write but have absolutely nothing to say. So I guess I'll go to bed. Maybe inspiration will come in a dream.
Pardon me for ending so many sentences with prepositions.
