Hello writer. It's me, your blog. Remember me?
Hello? Anybody home? I didn't think so.
No, wait. I'm here. I've just been a little, ahem, busy.
Sure. Sure. That's what you said about July.
I know. It happens.
Okay. I'll bite. What were you so busy doing????
Writing. Editing. Writing. Editing. Getting the kids back and settled into school. Starting up a creative writing/partner group.
Okay, so it's not like you've been sitting on the couch eating bon- bons.
I wish, but no. I haven't even been reading as much as I had this summer. But, I'm trying to make more time for that and organize my days a little better. I've even started knitting at night again.
Well, I'm glad to see you're back. How was GUTGAA?
It was an incredible experience, and even though I didn't end up with an agent at the end, I did get some positive feedback from the story I pitched and it's always good to know that I'm not the only one who thinks something is a good idea or a cute story.
Excellent. What's next?
PiBoIdMo, (Picture Book Idea Month) hosted by Tara Lazar. I tried this one last year, but lost steam after about (oooooh, can you see me blushing?) 6 or 7 days.
How's it going so far this year?
Well, it's day 2 and I'm two for two. So far so good. I'm looking to work with new ideas, but I have a theme for back up.
Then I'll let you get back to it, but don't leave me for so long next time. I was getting dusty and stuff.
I won't. Promise.
