chocolate and submissions. Not necessarily in that order.

Last night I got out my trusty 'Children's writer's and illustrators market 2010' and sat down with a highlighter and marked every publishing company that would possibly consider "Sally Circle." There were a few- what seemed to be- perfect matches, so I'm excited about that. All in all, there's roughly 18 that I can send it to. That's not including the few that don't accept simultaneous (multiple) submissions. I guess if none of the 18 want it I can try them too :-)

I'm currently having my cover letter/ms critiqued yet again (another round). Excuse me for being totally paranoid after the first submissions disaster! Wish me luck guys...

Last night I also ate the chocolate that I had bought for "Ms. Patty's" valentine's day gift (Ms. Patty is my daughter's preschool teacher). Oops. That was a low point in my life.

I have stopped attempting to bring traffic to my blog. I figure "if I build it, they will come." HA! We'll see about that. In any case, I've got a few loyal followers that give me awesome advice and I'm sure that others drop in occasionally...I think I'm doing well with this blog thing, y'know, seeing as I've never even had a blog before! More than anything, this blog kind of holds me accountable. I've always had a hard time finishing what I start and this blog is helping me!!! Seriously, I need all the help I can get!
