Alone Again

I am home in my messy little apartment (the last two weeks have been a whirlwind!), so I eat bad food, wash dishes, put things away, cuddle with Roxie, and sit down to write.

And I am touched by the words of inventor Nikola Tesla that I hear on NPR this evening: "Be alone, that is the secret of invention; be alone, that is when ideas are born." (Here's the link for the full quote.)

Good to remember, as I begin this new year, this 2009. I will try to be open to any ideas that are born to me.


P.S. Another rejection letter came today. I am happy about this. I can send that magazine a different story.
