The acoustic, bookstore session of The Cave, the most recent addition to one of my novel soundtracks. Consider it this blog post's soundtrack:
So, February was a complete wash for me writing-wise. I was lucky it was such a short month. I've donated my dollar a day that I don't write to Room to Read, and I'm excited to be supporting them! I'm so thrilled that I don't feel particularly bad for not being able to write each day. But February was also an exception when real life took over my writing life. On to writing!!
New Middle Grade Blog:
Come check out Anita's most recent venture. Anita is one of the most succinct, smart, down to earth bloggers, and I, for one, can't wait to read more from her on her new MG blog. And I can't wait to read her book!!
All you who have spent time on this blog, know that I have been revising a MG novel FOREVER (okay, like a year or two). I have written 2 and a half other YA drafts of novels in the meantime. But I've been struggling with some flaws that I see in my MG. I'm not ready to give up on it, but I have decided to rewrite (not revise) the parts that I've been struggling with. I just think starting fresh is the way to go. I feel as though if I know what the flaws are, then I should continue revising. I'm not ready to give up. But I am ready to pull it out of purgatory. I apologize to all who are waiting to see this work. You'll have to wait longer. :)
I hope you all stop by on Friday for a peek at a super cute new MG e-book. It seems like e-publishing is a hot trend right now. Margaret Golla (remember her fantastic interview last year? We had a party in the comments that day--let's have another one--she'll stop by to answer questions!!) has published her book, TO GNOME ME IS TO LOVE ME. Come ask her whatever you ever wanted to know about launching an e-book!!
Oh, and check out the AMAZING GOATS on Anna's blog today! Thanks, Anna for the inspiration!
