Seriously, don't let the door hit your bum on the way out.
Yay for March!
First things first--on Saturday, March 3rd, I will be appearing at a fabulous Read and Romp event in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday. Details are here . Proceeds benefit Reach Out and Read, a pediatric literacy program.

Let's see, what else is new?
Well, I bought a stuffed Yoda yesterday to use at class meeting time. (It's a thing where whoever is holding the special object is the only one who gets to speak...and I could not think of a more special object than a stuffed Yoda.)
I am about to dive into edits on a newish mg book. I got some great (as in helpful) feedback from my agent but I am holding off until the weekend to start. (We've got two concerts in two days coming up. Vocal jazz on Thursday and show choir on Friday. I shall be officially concerted out by Saturday, I fear.) But back to the writing, I am almost done with a bit of restructuring I did on Keelie of the Lake. I had been letting that one sit for a while until I could figure out what it needed. I think I found it and should be done soon.
I've been reading a delightful manuscript for a friend and am typing up a teeny bit of feedback.
I have two picture book drafts complete, but in that simmering stage. The great thing about a picture book draft is that they either get better with age (like a fine wine) or they start to stink (like garbage.) I am hoping I have written champagne, but only time will tell if I have indeed penned swill (or not.)
I should make a list of March goals, since it is one of my favorite months....but since it is still cruddy old Feb., I am going to be lazy and do it in the next post. I think I will hail the new month with Corned Beef!! Yes, every March should be welcomed with Corned Beef (and yeah, I know they didn't really eat it in Ireland, they ate Irish bacon. People started the whole Corned Beef thing here in America. True.)
Well, Happy March!
P.s. Um, this is so embarrassing....but look!
My husband said, "I liked your book on Amazon today." I said, "I liked it yesterday, so there." Yeah, so there. So ridiculous, but the sight of Trinket makes me happy in an all over kind of way.
