I needed this reminder because you always hit a point in the writing of any story that leaves you flummoxed and frustrated. It's easy to walk away and open a new document, play with a shiny new idea that seems to be brimming with possibilities.
But unfinished stories, like ghosts, exist in the shadows and haunt you. They demand completion. They deserve completion. I'm sharing this in case anyone else needed these words as much as me.
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! And thank you for your words of wisdom that you shared with us through 46 children's books. Truth be told, not only do I like reading your work to my kids, but I like to read them for myself. They inspire, they encourage and they give hope. And they're fun!
Your words, nonsensical rhymes with lots of common-sensical whimsy, are lessons for life.
