And Miles to Go Before I Sleep

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I’m not a huge fan of poetry – most of the time I don’t understand it…Except for Robert Frost.

As I sat down to write this, the line from one of my favorite poems of his: Stopping By The Woods On A Snowy Evening popped into my head – miles to go before I sleep. That line is as true for me now as it ever has been.

The month long rewrite class for the screenplay (recently renamed Worlds Away) is wrapping up and of course the story is in much better shape than it was three weeks ago (funny how editing works) – and then I launch into another month-long intensive pitch program to hopefully get some positive attention.

But, in the back of my mind is the novel (and screenplay) for Rebel Yell. Every time I think I’ve edited it to a good place, I send it off somewhere for critique and realize I have miles to go before I sleep.

I am ready for a short nap though!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
