“Sometimes I’m so focused on basketball, or soccer, or volleyball, or whatever else…that I don’t take time to see–or smell–life.” Incredibly, Mary was on the verge of tears, but I knew she’d keep it contained. She doesn’t break down. She doubles down. Where I might blubber and fall apart, Mary would channel those emotions into competitiveness or overcome something or kicking someone’s butt.
I’m looking forward to shifting from the editing to the publication phase of my YA Christian novel, Suddenly Rural Girl. This is another glimpse at one of the characters.
