  1. This has been a great week for me, Dan. I participated in my first Children’s Book Fayre, I participated in a corporate book event and I finished my Halloween poem entry for Aurora’s poetry competition. Not bad for a full time working mom I thought.

  2. I’ve had a great week too. I set my mind to finishing an article which I’ve just submitted to an Editor and generally just feeling good and supported by the Universe. Loved getting lots of things done in my garden too. 🌹🌷

  3. Turned my literary mindset around. If this round of querying doesn’t work out it doesn’t matter because I will either self publish or write other stuff. Querying will not define me as a writer. 💪🏻

  4. I’ve redesigned my blog to start fresh with a clearer goal for each week (the whole one-post-a-year model wasn’t working). I’ve tried reading just one book instead of five at once – it’s certainly helped! I also finalised the design of our Save the Dates earlier this week and, just now, paid the deposit for my wedding band/dj.

    Nothing staggering, but little gears that needed to click into place so the bigger machine could work.

    What’s your brag, Dan?

    1. One post a year! I wonder what that would be like…

      My brag? I host a Young Authors Club as my daughter’s grade school. We have 27 kids writing stories each week, and I type them up to go into a book (anthology) we publish at the end if the year. The brag part is, I was falling behind on my typing and I got somebody on Fiverr to catch me up. Now I’ll be able to print the stories and give the kids a thrill – most haven’t ever seen their words typed before, and it’ll be printed in a 6×9 book format, so it’ll look a lot like the finished product they’re working toward.

      If I play my cards right, I can do that while watching some college football…

            1. This year it’s grades 3-8. Last year was the same but we had a prolific second grader whose two older brothers both love to write, and they were in the club, so I let her try it. She did well!

              The year-end signing party was a blast.

  5. er….I managed not to drop any balls on any toes.
    That’s not to say I didn’t drop any balls, I just managed to miss anyone’s toes. ROFL. It’s a huge accomplishment, really, it is.

  6. I managed to complete a blog post again- I’ve been trying to complete it for a week and a half but the lil ones haven’t been cooperative. Not a huge writing win, but I’ll take it! On a non-writing note, this week was the first time that I felt like the children’s choir I’m directing will be ready for the big joint choral event that’s coming up…way, way too fast.

  7. The proof for my new book is winging its way to my front door! The next book is coming along nicely. The next book is just about done AND the book due out in February 2018 has a cover I love!
