"Funny the way life's trials and tribulations can make you laugh out loud when they're happening to Becky Povich. In her memoir, From Pigtails to Chin Hairs, Becky recalls a life's journey not always funny, to be sure, but told always with a wry bemusement that charms and delights. A wonderfully engaging story of the heroine next door."

* RECENT REVIEW FROM ROBERT BRAULT (Author of "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." ....among thousands of others)


"If you wish to step back in time and enjoy memories of the period, this book is what you need. Take your time with it, though, because you don't want to read it fast. Each paragraph is a deja vu, a throwback to a simpler time. Povich captures smells, experiences, innovations, and the way parenting used to be. Food, travel, playing outside till dinner. There's so much rich material here you can't digest it at once. Enjoyable read."

* RECENT REVIEW FROM C. HOPE CLARK (Author of the Carolina Slade Mystery Series, and editor of Funds for Writers)

** Part 2 of Yesterday's "To Be Continued" **

My apologies for not continuing this last night!

Well, I did sing and dance my way around the house yesterday for awhile, and that helped my mood considerably. But, what really got me back into my Writing Zone, was a documentary on HBO Family last night. It was almost half over when I happened upon the station, but those few moments were rejuvenating. It was "Hard Times for An American Girl: The Great Depression".  The following is the description on the website:

"The very young and the very old teach and inspire each other in this documentary focusing on what it was like to grow up during the Great Depression. Children interview folksinger Pete Seeger, artist Faith Ringgold, poet Philip Levine, and others, and learn about how the 1930s changed their lives. Mixing archival films, photos and kids discovering history, this half-hour film is a meditation on happiness and survival during very hard times. Directed and produced by Amy Schatz."

As soon as it was over, I marched upstairs to my office and got down to bidness on my book! I settled down, settled in,  and accomplished quite a bit. I'm feeling great today and I pledge to continue....feeling great and writing my book, that is!

Thanks so much to all of you who left such encouraging comments yesterday! They meant so much to me!
