The Adventures of Diggitty Dog
I am a firm believer that if you get an idea that will not go away, it is destiny. You are doing yourself a big disservice if you do not act on it.
For the past several months, I have had an idea about a series of children's books that teach children something in a fun way. My dog Diggitty is going to be my hero. Diggitty, who is pictured above, lives on a big farm and takes kids on adventures while teaching them how things grow and live on a farm.
This idea has been in my head so long, I was able to write the first book in less than two hours. Today I finished book two.
It isn't that the books were so easy to write but that they rattled around until they were complete and only needed to be written down.
The turning point from thinking to writing came the other night when I sat and watched Beth Carter, Allison Merritt and Tierney James give their book reviews at the Friends of the Library in Marshfield last Tuesday night.
I was proud of them. They did a great job. That night I asked myself what I was waiting for and the answer came back. Nothing.
So, be sure to check back and follow the Adventures of Diggitty Dog. She is a hoot and you might just learn something about gardening, animals, and the antics of an eight pound protagonist.
