I went to the SCBWI( Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) Christmas party last night with my sister and got to meet some wonderful writers and illustrators. I told my sister, Hannah, that I felt like the wife in Waiting for Guffman when she’s all “we never get to mix with the creative types. We mostly hang out with other people with babies.” The host’s name was Anna Myers and she was a hoot! By the end of the night my smiler was all sore from laughing.
As far as my goals, getting to that party was one of them! Check. As for reading through my rough draft- failure on that. Wah wah.
I’ve been meaning to do more book reviews, so I will do that. Last week I had a sort of book binge. Many books came in at the library and I haven’t felt like looking at my Manuscript Of Doom. So, I am really going to get through that this week, now that I’m visiting my parents and I can go over to my sister’s house and work.
Here’s a list of my goals:
- READ ROUGH DRAFT (without editing along the way)
- Exercise 2 times (this is new!)
- Review books on my blog for book reviews (I actually have on of those)
- Write creative fiction every day (no word count specifications)
How’s everyone else’s week going? The holidays are coming right up! I am so behind on Christmas presents!
