Wednesday evening we traveled back to Syracuse for a double-header, Syracuse Chiefs' baseball game. They won both games! Our wonderful foreign exchange student LOVED it to say the least. Now I brought my writing bag with me, "just in case" since I was in the groove when it was time to leave. My daughter captured this shot of me reading an aritcle on how to improve one's query letter. I read a few other articles and reviewed my outline and book proposal.
In addition to this, I finished reading "A Stolen Life". Jaycee Dugard's memoir of her eighteen years of captivity following her kidnapping at the age of 11. Oh my gosh, I couldn't stop crying. Happy she was found and is using her tragedy to help others, sad for the loss she and her family experienced, and torn - Will we find Heidi?

Jaycee is an amazing woman - keep her, her children, her Mom, aunt, family and friends in your prayers! She writes to help others...
I did watch the game and take photographs but there is a lot of down time at a baseball game. So remember to bring your work next time.
Prior to the game I worked away and then the girls joined me.
Today we went to Sea Breeze in Rochester and I brought another book with me. Dave Fessenden's Writing the Christian Nonfiction Book: Concept to Contract and nearly finished it. A great book! We had fun but someone had to sit with the bags and cooler - since I don't like rides, and love a good book...Ed and I did sneak away for a ride on the carousel. We were the only ones on it too...tee hee!
