An intriguing title? Yes! And a beautiful book woven from an imaginary world – constructed over years – and real life. Above all, it is a testimony to God’s love in sustaining the faith of a young girl.
Hannah suffered, walked by faith, and survived. She used her imagination to help make sense of what she experienced. Her creations – children, animals and stuffed animals that are alive, parents, teachers, doctors, and nurses – suffer and survive too.
Her book concludes on a strong note of hope. More of her story appears here.
Just recently I learned that the writerly term for this is work in progress, WIP. My WIP recounts the adventures, tragic and comic, of three fairytale heroines. As a writer I’m slow, a tiny caterpillar chewing on a large leaf. I love my little book and hope to finish it someday! It’s a joy to retell old tales and make them our own.
Patricia Tiffany Morris has written an Ode to this interesting, frantic, celebrated November event.

oh barren page
blank and white. . .
At the bottom of her November calendar, she wrote these wonderful words:
let God write my life story!

“I’ve always had a flair for imagination. More so, now that computers rule the world in even the art world. But I must admit that I find the blending of art and writing the most satisfying of pursuits. . .”
