While on a Writer Work Day, my dad and I keep mom updated via txt. We have a lot of fun joking around.
I'll be at the OC Children's Book Festival on October 4, 2015. I may even be doing a presentation (I'm a little nervous about that).
You'll meet all kinds of authors, artists, and performers—there's always a lot going on, and it's free to get in. Check it out! And if you go, don't forget to stop by and visit. I'll post my booth number soon as I get it.
At least once a month, I take a writer work day with my dad. It helps to get a lot done in one day. The trick is to plan fun breaks (like crawdad fishing!) and to keep moving. When you get tired of writing (writing is hard work!) move to new location. Moving helps wake you up so you can write some more.

In my June 29th post, I reviewed The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms. I mentioned that the movie was based on The Fog Horn, a short story by Ray Bradbury.
Today I read The Fog Horn, and I enjoyed it.
The story takes place in a lighthouse. On a foggy night, Mcdunn and Johnny see something moving in the fog. When the fog horn moans its warning, something answers from “the deepest Deeps.” The story gets more exiting from there.
You can find the The Fog Horn in the collection, The Vintage Bradbury. The story was first published in the Saturday Evening Post (1951). Here’s the original illustration from the magazine.
And heres an image from The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms. You can see the similarities!
Read the story. It’s a lot of fun.
