How about McKinley Mill? This was an actual saw mill where my dad grew up. It's long gone but I know where it used to be because he would always point it out when we were in the area. Just a suggestion.

I like it, I like it. McKinley is a family name, so it fits really well. So far, this is tops on the list. Thanks, Anne!

Wow, just thinking about that makes my head hurt! (G).

Seriously, I was usually pretty good about creating and keeping a bible for my stories. Or, as two of my writing buddies and I called it "the timeline for our scheme-of-things". All three of us were very often guilty of World Builders Disease. But, hey, (G), it was a lot of fun!

Life has just gotten in the way of working on my WIP the last few years.(As it always seems to do! Or at least my job has.) As that always seems to too. I've been carrying around my notes for my Witch's Brew series. I take it out and look at it a few times a week. But nothing clicks.

I'm really thinking I've just lost my mojo on writing in general.

My two friends and I are going to what has become our annual getaway weekend. Scotty was lamenting how, in the not-so-old-days, we could brain-storm and write a 100 pages over a weekend. Now, we just worry about what food stuffs we're bringing and which CDs/DVDs/games etc.

It's difficult for me to even write letters anymore. I sit in front of a blank page and can't think of anything to say.

I remember the days when I was so excited about something, I'd have to get up in the middle of the night and get it down on paper, or into the computer. Now, what wakes me up in the middle of the night, is either a trip to the john or ohmygosh....did I pay the water bill???

I'm trying to find my way back to the excitement stage of it all. Writing and planning the bible was one of the best and most fun parts...(hope this doesn't sound like too much drivel) ... wish me luck.
