DAY 13/12: I had a vision last night, in which I saw clearly that everything I've been working on is connected: teaching NaNoWriMo, writing My Own Magic, offering community writing workshops, self-publishing, and enlisting the help of professionals. I saw clearly that I've surrounded myself with people who not only value books and writing, but who are in positions to say YES: my school administrator who said yes to giving me a budget to publish student novels; the publisher who said yes to giving us a discount because he thinks the project is important; students who said yes to the challenge of writing a novel; and angels who have said yes, we'd like to promote your project. I'm surrounded by YESes, which says to me I'm in the right place at the right time. I believe I'm in the early stages of creating a wide-reaching writing program, involving teachers, students, parents, publishers, editors, and corporate donors. It's exciting! And I say yes, I'm ready.
