Wow, it has been a little while since I've updated things...
Since visiting Mrs. Vujic's classroom before Thanksgiving, I've been focused on just about everything except writing. Yes, I have managed to write a few pages, but my productivity has been very low.
Meanwhile, I did get a chance to attend a continuity meeting with my Eastern Michigan Writing Project family. I always enjoy meeting up with people that really inspire me to write. The positive energy that we are able to create when we get together is amazing. I only regret that we do not do it more often because I never get a chance to talk to everyone as much as I would like to.
Also, I have been quietly working with a publisher to see if I can get Wrinkles Wallace: Knights of Night School out for the public. On 10 DEC 11, I went to Cleveland, Ohio to sign my book contract. Yes, a book contract.
This has been quite a journey. What started as an idea that kept me up in the middle of the night, has become something that I believe will change my life. I've spent so many hours writing, editing, revising, planning, talking, listening, deciding, creating, thinking, producing, pushing, reading, etc.
I want to SCREAM! I want to CELEBRATE! I want to sleep. I want May to hurry up so Wrinkles Wallace: Nights of Night School will finally be available for the public.
More than anything, I want to thank everyone that has provided positive energy for my writing. I know the words are easier to put together when I have positive energy around me.
So, here's to dreams coming true!
