A “Neat” Idea

I have just discovered this blog called Penelope Loves Lists. I can only claim to be someone who aspires to be neat. But I do try.
Today’s post felt like it speaks directly to my writer’s heart. It starts out like this:
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about something a (smart, sweet, young) friend said to me the other day. She said she’s been working on “not telling herself too complete a story” about how something might work out. How wise. So difficult.
 You’ve got to read the rest of it. It was like she’d been sitting right here in my study, watching me chicken out about the latest WIP.
