Two days ago, I was stressing out. I mean, I had a little more than twelve days to set up an interview, figure out how to capture the voices on camera with no mics (probably won’t happen), plan my learning center, figure out the RSVPS and write a speech that I hadn’t started. I believe this is called result of procrastination. However, I am no longer freaking out. I actually finished a rough draft of my speech (yay) and I have an interview scheduled for later today. From my research, I have learned quite a bit about writing. I’ve learned that sometimes big expanded moments are just nuisances and can easily be replaced with a single sentence. Hopefully this will help my complete my goal in finishing my book. If only I had my own team of ghost writers. It would make everything so much simpler. The research has definitely opened up new perspectives for writing as well as new influences for my stories maybe. I also loved writing as Edna, Harriet’s sister. It was really fun and not nearly as hard as I thought. Sadly, I still have no clue what I am going to do for my learning center. I believe I will have one of Harriet’s books on my table but that’s about as far as my planning’s gone. Sadly, I still have no clue what I am going to do for my learning center.

I want people to come away knowing that Carolyn Keene was not Ms. Benson and was in fact Harriet Stratemeyer. I also want people to know how much influence Harriet had and that certain words and stories can have so much meaning and power behind them that the outcome can be unbelievable.
