Checking at 12:33 AM since I have been sleeping since 5:20 PM.  Have been in Writeoncon also.  I have been working on PB's.  I will work on MG later on today, Wednesday, and Thursday.  Thanks all for the support. It is greatly appreciated.

Not an early riser today. Up late looking for meteors. Successful: saw two.

Hi AnneB - Watching meteors cool. Yes it is Friday already.  :whistle
I'm still playing catch-up on the WriteOnCon sessions. Also need to pick a Picture Book idea to start on next, decisions, decisions. My writing always slows down when I don't know what my daily goals are.  :snow

Happy Monday, everyone! I'm trying to get in a little writing before it's time to go get a wisdom tooth pulled. I've written thousands and thousands of words of brainstorming on this new WIP but I still don't have a solid outline. I'm having trouble getting my characters to fight their way out of the mess I've put them in.   :batman

Back to work.

Hi Vonna, maybe the characters need a triple-fudge sundae as an incentive. (oh wait maybe that's for me). Wisdom tooth, hope you recover smoothly.

Good Morning Anne.

Trying to figure out which picture book idea to write next.

It's totally not early but I'm back. I've been at the beach with no internet for a week. Ready to dive back into my WIP. Vonna, I hope your tooth extraction goes without a hitch and you have a quick recovery. Those things are a bear.

Greetings to Luv2 and everybody else. Slept in today because I have a coffee shop parallel writing date with two other friends. Parallel writing = parallel play. Some interaction, mostly do your own thing!

Darshana,

Good Morning!  I have a question for you.  Are there any publishers who take online submissions that you are aware of.

Luv2eatreadwrite, browse around in the Market/Agent News and Discussion board, http://www.verlakay.com/boards/index.php?board=7.0 you'll find tons of great info there, or in the Publishers response times thread, http://www.verlakay.com/boards/index.php?board=20.0

Always follow up with you own research by going directly to the publisher's website for submission policies because they change!  :goodluck

Luv2eatreadwrite, I second H.Pinkski's advice. I am not familiar if there are any publishers that take online submissions. But then again I am not really looking right now either. Best of luck to you.

I'm here. I just forgot to sign in this morning. I blame the allergy meds but really, it's just a moral failing...

I'm here. Anne, I feel your pain; allergies are a bear this year. I've taken meds more than I ever have before.

Got a big chunk done yesterday (3.5K) on my WIP ending, then realized it didn't work. Put it away, took the dog for a walk, and came up with a new angle. This morning is fix-it time.

I'm here. Did Morning Pages first instead of signing in so I wouldn't get distracted, then forgot to sign in! A whole blissful day with nothing scheduled except writing and prepping tomatoes to roast for supper.
