First of all, my husband got his job assignment and now here we are in...Germany! We've been here about four months already (wow did that time go fast!) It's been a crazy, hard, amazing, and fun adventure so far.
Second of all, we had our baby #4! She came at the beginning of November and is already two months old (Wow that went by even faster!) We are so happy to have her here safe and sound, and boy is she a cutie!
As far as writing goes....As you can guess, I've had a lot less free time with all that's been going on, but I'm trying to make time when I can because writing truly fills my happiness cup. Here's a few updates:
- Out of 237 entries, my story BROKEN-DOWN broom from my previous post got 7th place in Susanna Hill's Halloweensie contest, so that was fun!
- I'm participating in Tara Lazar's STORY STORM again this year. It's the best writing inspiration activity I've found yet. If you're struggling to come up with new picture book ideas, you should definitely check it out!
- With a new year ahead, I've made new writing goals. This year, I plan to query five agents a month, with a total of 60 this year. I also have several specific manuscript drafts that I plan on finishing up and getting ready to submit. I'm going to get it done in 2019!!
- I'm applying to Tara Luebbe's 2019 Writing with the Stars mentoring program. There are some pretty amazing authors this year. The contest is open until January 13th if you want to check it out!
