I'm quite excited about these stories I'm writing about Ruthie and Marcie. They are fun to write my kids love them (though this is often not a good indication of anything because my kids are great fans of mine).
In the shower I figured out Marcie's dog's name. It is Stinkhead. The kids will like them.
Hawk and I are reading a book about Roald Dahl written by a friend of his. He writes that Dahl said kids' books must be funny. So, we shall try (though not hard -- it's gotta play out on its own. Ruthie already defied me, her creator -- uh oh - - I just heard her say she wasn't created. She was born! -- but anyway, I had to follow where the characters took me).
