As most of my followers know, I write picture books, middle grade books and children's articles.
I also write poems and I write about Appalachia.
Recently, I have tried something new. I have written something I never thought I would write.
I woke up one morning with a song in my mind. It was only a few sentences - a start of a chorus. But, I went to my computer and typed it down before it flew from my mind.
Before the day was over, those few sentences evolved into an entire song! A few days later, after tweaking it a little, I emailed it to my cousin, who sings and plays the piano, to see if she thought it had any merit. She liked it - and we are still working on it.

And, I am considering giving greeting cards a try.
What do you write?
Have you ever wandered into a different writing territory than you are used to?
If not, maybe you should give it a try.
