Posted my second picture book manuscript in 12 X 12 today. Anxious to read comments and hoping it will help me revise it. Taking it this Wednesday to SOUP meeting. I will definitely get feedback from them. I can always depend on them to help me make it better. I also woke up this morning with a new picture book idea. Hopefully I will be able to get this one in shape for submission sometimes during the year. On March 1st I begin a researching of picture books with guidance form blogs from author-educators. This is going to be tough but I will try to go into this with an open mind. Revising a middle grade novel, hoping to send off chapter books this week or next week and then continue to revise picture books and young adults novels I already have written.
Lily’s Lagniappe: Louisiana always has a little winter blast during the lent time. It usually is much closer to Easter, but it is attacking them today. Hopefully the skimpy little Easter dresses everyone buys for Easter Sunday will not need a coat this year. Remember the great soups during lent on Friday.
