I was working on the second part of A Pocketful of Poppies because I had more ideas for this story that I wanted to write down and I went onto one of my favorite websites, Flickr, to find a particular picture I had in mind to help with inspiration. Instead, I found these three pictures of a bedroom that someone had posted and I immediately fell in love with the setting. I also immediately pictured it as Poppy’s bedroom. The second part of the story takes place a lot of the time in her room and I wanted to have it imagined in my head. I think these pictures are perfect for Poppy.

I write every day. I love it and it truly makes me happy when I can sit down and create an entire world from my imagination. I might be posting before the holidays. I cannot help myself. I am not sure though. I do not want to promise anything. I know how busy everyone is with this insane holiday season.

Poppy and Justin, even though they are fictional, mean so much to me. It all started with Poppy and Justin. If I do update, is anyone interested in reading a second part to A Pocketful of Poppies? Let me know. Thank you.

I really love your work, and in fact spend many days when I should be doing homework reading about Holden or Amelia or any of the original group and their offspring. A lot of it reminds me of my high school and even more of how much I wished high school had been.

I really can picture that as Poppy's room! I just LOVE that desk! Not the colour of the walls but everything else is perfect for her! :) Haven't read the first part yet but please do post the second part and as soon as I have enough time this weekend I shall be procrastinating from all my work and reading your stories! :)

I have not been reviewing as much lately, but I am reading ALL of your stories (mostly at the office when I should be doing work :)

I cant wait for the second part of the story or for anything you decide to post!

It would be a very welcomed relief from the insanity of the holidays to read your work. I hope that you do update whenever you're ready.

An update would be an awesome Christmas present to all us fans.
With that said...

Merry Christmas!
