Last week I decided to write an e-book. I wanted to cover the basics of geocaching and use some of the lessons I've learned in the book.
On Sunday I sat down, opened my word processor and got started. I
managed to come up with an outline and a couple of good stories to

Cross your fingers for me – I'm a little on the superstitious
side and this event has me torn between writing like a mad woman or
hiding under my bed.
Let's hope writing works because I'm too big to fit under the bed.
