Editor's Note:
Stories to Tell

As you can tell, I've changed some of the set up for Vision again.  One of the joys of working with an ezine is that it is so easy to change and experiment with as far as the layout is concerned.

However, as much as I love working with Vision, by the time I get each issue finished and up on the site, I'm more than ready to go back to work on regular writing.  Appropriately for this issue, I have three novels calling to me right now, and it's been difficult not to 'forget' that I have work to do elsewhere and just throw myself into one of them.  They are in three different stages; the first in final rewrite/edit, the second in first draft, and the third in note/outline phase.  I want to move forward on all of them.  Instead, I've worked on Vision and Forward Motion material for the last couple days.

They call to me.  They haunt my thoughts at night when I'm trying to sleep.  Pieces of dialogue and bits of intrigue hit in the middle of dinner and I have to reach for my PDA and jot things down.  I'm lucky that my husband understands.

The one thing I could wish for everyone who reads Vision is that they find the same joy in writing that I've always had.

I hope that you find helpful material in this issue.  Good luck with your writing.  And now that this is posted and the new month has begun, you'll find me back at the work I love the most.  I have stories to tell.

Have fun,

Zette
