During a quiet moment in an otherwise hectic vacation, I pondered the idea of writing stories for children while sharing some fine Indian cuisine with my husband. I have a few ideas that I think are pretty solid. He was supportive and encouraging. He asked probing and thought provoking questions and offered to help in any way that I needed him to. The problem of course is not a lack of ideas or support. The problem is getting started on those ideas and then following through. The problem is not having any idea where to actually start. Well I know I need to do the actual serious writing, do several drafts, actually commit the stories to paper. But still I feel overwhelmed and bogged down at the same time.
