Honestly, most of my memories from Jr. High and High School are not that great. It was an anxiety-filled, uncomfortable, awkward time for me, as I now realize it is for most teens. So to combat the negative memories welling up in me, I started playing the “what if game.” What if things had been different? What if I had made different choices? Three things I got from that game was: one, I do not regret my choices. Two, I wish cell phones have been invented thirty years earlier (they might have eased my social awkwardness). Three, my story of Ruth and Tall Willows.
Tall Willows, Ruth, her family, and friends inundated my brain for weeks before I ever wrote a word. In my mind's eye, I watched the characters move through their stories over and over again, like a movie that wouldn’t shut off. I made a bargain with myself to write ONE chapter. If that went well, I’d try another. Two hundred thousand words later, I had completed my first draft of Tall Willows. That first draft has gone through a lot of edits to get to where it is today. I still have five move books stuck in my brain, waiting to come out and complete the whole story.
