Bookends -- Our house is filled with them. In the forms of duck heads, bears, sea shells, wooden blocks, candles, flower pots and bricks, they rest among the shelves and table tops supporting the books that we've read over the years.
My favorite bookends are atop my writing desk and encase the novels I've written and continue to write. Two are published, CORRUPT CONNECTION and BETTER LATE THAN EVER. Two remain works in process, UNINVITED VISIONS and MELTING SAND. Seeing them sitting between the duck heads in clear view gives me motivation to continue, knowing much has been accomplished and that much more remains.
