Hey you!! Get back to writing in there!!
I've had a few intense weeks as my kids finished school, and am so excited for the summer schedule. My kids have already fallen into the rhythm of playing together, swimming at the lake, and just hanging out. They were made for summer, I think.
Now, I am trying to fall into a writing rhythm. A before and after type deal. Before the kids wake up and the frenzied activity begins, and after the kids fall asleep exhausted. Bookending my day with writing. That's what this week is all about--pounding out the writing time. I'm hoping that soon I'll have some really awesome goals to report, but right now, it's still just about finding the rhythm to summer write.
In case you've been as unplugged as I have been, here are some updates:
WIBIJ, or Where In the Blogosphere is Jon?!, is undergoing construction. We'll let you know when we are up and running again. We thought that the beginning of summer was an excellent time to make improvements on the blog format. Feel free to stop by and chat, it's always a party over there!
Paul is giving away books, and starting a discussion around titles for reluctant boy readers. Definitely worth stopping by.
Adventures in Children's Publishing is giving away books (ending today, so throw your hat in the ring!), and talking about...
...WriteOnCon--the free kidlit writer's conference taking the internet by storm in August. Make sure to go register July 1st! Woo-hoo!!
And, be sure to stop by here on Friday, and give Steve Brezenoff some love. We're kicking off the Summer series of Journeys Toward Publication and Beyond with a discussion of his book, the Absolute Value of -1, due out in the fall.
So, tell me, what goals do you have this week? Will I see you in The Practice Room?
