So long Summer! This will go down in my books as the first summer I spent seriously devoted to writing! If I were an apple farmer I would say I had an abundant harvest this summer. Here is just a partial list of things I accomplished.
❦ I attended my first SCBWI Summer Conference.
❦ I joined a Peer Critique Group!
❦ I connected with another Children’s Writer in my neighborhood!
❦ I read 30+ picture books.
❦ I took 2 online writing courses.
❦ I wrote 4 new short stories and made progress on my Middle Grade WIP.
❦ I learned how to use a “twitter hashtag.”
❦ I received my first acceptance…more news to come soon on that front!
It was a beautiful summer. It felt so right to surround myself with writing, reading, and learning about children’s literature.
Hello September! I’m back to work. I’m ready! Just like a great harvest leads to delicious apple pie, I’m hoping my summer will lead to a fruitful fall!
