Was your winter writing as depressing as mine? ACK!
The story accepted by an honest-to-goodness editor in a real publishing house was turned down in the acquisitions meeting.
But I pulled myself together in time for the new year. And what a fun-filled, jam-packed year it’s been so far!
I spent January gathering ideas with Tara Lazar in Storystorm (aka PiBoIdMo). February brought a blizzard of information at the SCBWI Winter Conference in New York. And March has been a whirlwind of reading mentor texts with Carrie Charley Brown in ReFoReMo.
Now, with a fresh arsenal of writing ideas, information, and mentor texts I’m ready to take on a new season.
Spring Training is upon us and I’m going to be ready for the big game!
It’s time to get off the bench and stretch those writing muscles.
I’m working on honing my craft, developing those mad writing skills…
until I hit one out of the ballpark!
And when I finally get that call…
all that training and practice and diligence will have paid off!
