Listen to the Mustn'ts, child, listen to the Don'ts.
Listen to the Shouldn'ts, the Impossibles, the Won'ts.

Listen to the Never Haves, then listen close to me.
Anything can happen, child, Anything can be.

Everything is Fine

I promised myself I wouldn't read anything until my book was finished because I didn't want any influences sneaking into my writing. 

But, on Sunday I could write no more.  I am so brain dead from work I just didn't have any juices left in me; creative, sugar-free, extra pulp or otherwise.  So, I cheated and read "Everything is Fine" by Ann Dee Ellis.

I loved it!  Very different and very powerful, or at least extra strength.  I can't tell too much without spoiling the story but I loved the angle of depression from the view point of the child.  I could completely relate and my heart ached for the child and the mom.

Anyone read it?  What did you think?
