Primetime Live

This Thursday on the ABC newsmagazine show Primetime Live they will be doing a piece on foster children. I don't often watch that show but I hope I remember to tune to it tomorrow.

I want to watch primarily because I have been hoping to one day write a novel about teenage foster children. The idea has been rattling around in my head since I watched a documentary on PBS about 3 girls in the foster care system.


In fact, I have been playing around with a first chapter of this novel already. I speak about in my previous post titled Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy. The novel would be told from the point of view of five 17 year olds who are about to leave the foster care system.

Song Lyrics of the Day

When I go by our old house
I pretend that you're still there
Waitin' for me on the porch
But there's just an empty chair
Wish I could see you
just one more time
Before I drive away
So I could stop and go inside,
and say "I miss you a little
since you've been gone
A few little memories
keep hangin' on
I miss you a little,
I guess you could say
A little too much,
a little too often
A little more every day."

John Michael Montgomery

    Hi RW, remember the first story I ever saw when you put it up and I wrote to you the first time and commented about a girl..
    I think that could have a nice foster twist to it too, if you wanted.
    love

    Susan,
    I had not thought of merging the two but you are right. A Girl Like Me was a free association exercise, but now that I think about it, I was writing from the same kind of viewpoint. I guess this subject matter is swimming around in me waiting to be explored.

    Bye for now,
    Sara

    Kelley,
    I hope it will make a interesting novel. Like so many writers I have a million ideas but I need to find the one I can believe in enough to see through to the end of the manuscript.
    I liked the scene you posted in your blog the other day. Keep up the good work.
