Happy Phyllis's Birthday, Everyone!
Yep, today's the day, Phyllis's birthday (which she just happens to share with my husband... coincidence?) so Happy Happy Happy Day to Phyllis (ladies first!) and Eric :)
How great is this week? We've managed to have a legitimate excuse for cake every single day so far!
Not only is today Phyllis's birthday - very fitting that it should fall during National Phyllis Week, don't you think? - it is also the first day of the Chinese New Year - The Year of The Rabbit. (And no, Phyllis, there is no year of the groundhog, and yes, we all understand how misguided that is!)
According to some online source which may or may not be reliable, the Year of the Rabbit should be quiet, positive and inspiring, and an excellent time for the arts. I choose to interpret that as a stellar year ahead for writers!
Of course, that requires that I write. So I'm off to work on today's manuscript for the Picture Book Marathon (I'm 2 for 2 so far, so off to a good start!) whilst simultaneously baking birthday cake. Perhaps today's story should be about a bunny... who is friends with a beautiful groundhog... who has been snowed in for days... but will be having birthday cake for supper :) Or not. Feel free to send inspiration my way :) 26 stories in a month is a LOT!
