The beginning again

IMG_5450

Words have been coming fast and furious these days. Unbidden, but scrawled and typed and collected any way I can hang onto them. After spending two and a half years on a novel, it’s strange and wonderful to be back at the beginning again.

Oh beginnings…

“I first saw Amelia in a remainder bin at a bookstore on Queen Street. It was during the quiet stretch between Christmas and New Year’s and everyone I knew was out of town, including my then-boyfriend, Scott. There were dog identification books in the bin, and 2002 calendars and there was Amelia, with her goggles perched on her head, and her tall riding boots.”
