Good Morning,

Vonna, glad to see that you are making progress.  I did make some progress over the weekend.  What writing workshop are you applying to?  I wish you luck with that. 

Darshana, good luck on your PB revisions.  For me, today I have to tutor, do some school work, and revise a PB book.  Have a great writing day all.

Late checking in this morning.  I've been up working on three projects.  Have any of you ever worked with A Pass Educational? Perhaps I will PM Ev.  Have a great writing day all.  I will check back after noon.  Thanks!  Happy Writing All!

Checking in to say I'm not checking in again until around the 15th due to 1) continued pollen attacks and 2) vacation! See you-all mid-month!

Boo to the pollen and ya to the vacation, Anne! Have a good time!
Luv, I'm applying to a weekend workshop with Francisco X. Stork at the Writing Barn in Austin TX. The workshop is in November. I'm anxious because I didn't get an acknowledgement of my application and sample pages but I'll give it a little longer before I contact the organizer. Good luck on the three projects you are working on!

Good Morning:

I have not checked-in in a few days, but it does not mean I have not been working.  I have been working hard not on ms, but on "auditioning" for A Pass educational.  So I hope to work on picture book ms today after I finish doing school work.  How have you been Vonna? Darshana, have you made any progress with the revisions? Well I wish you all a happy writing day.

Glad you checked in, Luv2. Good luck with A Pass!  :goodluck

I got into the Stork workshop, hurray!  :hurrah: Of course, now that I've written the first three chapters of the WIP I want to bring in both first person and third person (settled on third), I'm worried I've written it from the wrong character's POV. So I'm rewriting it today.  :thinktoohard:

Good Luck with your rewrite.  I applied with A Pass, but they sent me a sample for writing test item after seeing my resume.  It has been a while since I did that so now I am trying to get back in the mindset.  Hope all is well and happy writing all!

Hi Vonna and all the other writers,

Good luck with the rewrites.  I have to tutor today, take a culinary arts class at 4, and revise a PB book.  Happy writing to all.

Hello Everyone:

This is my second cup of  :coffee3:.  Been up for a while and I started a second project.  Creating a blog and website for the Common Core Standards for teachers.  I was talking to a teacher at the library and she was stressing out about the new standards.  So we got to talking and I was like since I lived and taught in many states, I should share some of my ideas.  So let's see where this goes. Anyway, happy writing to all.

Good morning, all! Everyone sounds busy and productive, and I need to be, too.  It's time to dig into pb revisions and subs before we leave again in two weeks. Time to limber up the fingers!
Aloha,

Good morning everyone! School kicking into gear knocked the wind out of me this week, but I'm adjusting. I've put the current WIP aside to work on seasonal poetry for the Children's Writer contest. It's a nice change of pace. Someday, somewhere, perhaps I'll actually win something!

Have a wonderful Thursday. :star2

Hello Tori:

It is hot here in Florida as well - 92 degrees to be exact.  I wish I could just go back home and get in my bed.  But I have to work and I have class at seven.  Happy writing all.

Good Morning all....

Great news!  I saw the advertisement for the all day twitter pitch yesterday.  So I participated before going class.  I woke up this morning to a twitter notification from an agent who wants me to query her.  That was a nice surprise. 

Anyway, I have to brush up on my ms.  So I need to get to it.  Happy writing all!

 :oops Forgot to check in this morning. I started on a 250 word synopsis I'm supposed to write for a workshop, but by the time I had 250 words, I'd only covered two chapters. So I just kept going.  :giddyup I like to send a full synopsis to my agent anyway. Eventually, I'll get a 250 word version. Taking a break now, but will be writing again later this afternoon.
