Summer is almost here. With summer come good things that we started during the short, darker days of winter.
Today I’m happy to share just a few with you.
* The three Picture Book manuscripts that I submitted to the 2015 CYA made the short list in the writing competition.
The Children’s and Young Adults Writing and Illustrating Conference is based in Australia, and I thank my friend Stella from Sydney for introducing me to the writing competition.
Wish me luck!
*The first draft of my new Middle Grade novel is well under way.
Although I freaked out many times this winter considering my slow progress, I’m happy to say that spending time with my fictional characters, before jumping to the keyboard, wasn’t such a bad idea. Talking of keyboard, I found out that my old notebook and pen weren’t too bad either. In the end I got to know my people much better and handwriting is more liberating than typing.
