In my own words...

I'm trying to spend a few hours with my book this weekend.  I have so much editing and rewriting to do, it's overwhelming.  But every once in a while, I come across a line that inspires me to keep the faith.  Here are three of my favorite lines from the novel-in-progress:

I don’t condone defiance toward God, ya see, but won’t I forever encourage the questioning of mere men.

I long for night, for sleep.  People think it’s because of fatigue, but it’s not.  When I close my eyes, you come back to me.

Each time we lower our heads and turn away, we allow the establishment to continue their cruelties, and they use our silence as their protection.  We are their victims, and we are their shields!
