This will be the last post on my project for a while. I will try to provide more interesting fodder for my readers on other subjects in future posts. But I have continued to write on this story...there seems to be endless research that interrupts my every sentence. Thus far I have researched flora in Australia, bakery goods in Australia, aboriginal names, and more on geology, mining, and mineral values than I will ever put into any book. But it seems one must be able to swim in the deep waters before heading out to the cleaner parts of the pool. (Geesh...what a weird analogy.) Granny was correct in commenting that many have files of well-intentioned stories that seem to be still born. But I am enjoying this project thus far and setting aside some time each morning to work on it. It even is competing with my morning light photography of birds! By the way, I actually sold a photo as a greeting card this week. It is not about the money CLEARLY...just such a reward that someone wanted to buy a work that I created! Well, I have to head out as hubby is banging dishes about in the kitchen and the day is well underway.
