Surfer Chick(en) draft complete...kind of

So, I finished a draft that I like...I think. It needs to go in the hopper and simmer a bit so that I can read it in a few weeks and see if I still like it. Actually, I have 3 different drafts of Surfer Chick. I am not certain which is the best one. I should probably get some feedback soon. But I need a little distance from it.

Thank you, little chicken in the picture below, for inspiring the third version. You rock!, peck.

Welcome to the Story Castle

This is it, kids. This is where all of the magic happens.....err, well actually, most of the magic happens in my notebook (which sports a multi-colored floral motif currently, but will be shifting to black and white checkerboard before the summer is over.) However, I will strive to be a good queen and keep my loyal subjects informed. I have about 5, that's right, 5 projects that I am working on right now. You know what that means, don't you? When you try to go 5 different directions at one time, you don't really get anywhere! Aaaaauuuggh!

Organization is always difficult....for me anyway. Maybe it's the fact that I get distracted easily, I don't know. But I find that if I give myself permission to pursue several projects simultaneously, I get a lot of work done. Of course, don't ask me how many things I finish!!! That's what I am striving to do, finish more of what I start.

So, right now I am trying to finish a draft of a book about a surfing chicken called, (wait for it) Surfer Chick!! Get it? A chicken who surfs!! Ha ha! (Okay, get used to the fact that most of what I write is for the sole purpose of amusing myself.) I actually wrote a story with the same title a while ago, but it kind of stunk. But I can't seem to let go of the project for July is to take this
