Writing

I was able to get several writing goals accomplished Monday and Tuesday. I sent off for some magazine samples. I've written an article and am trying to make sure I'm targeting the correct magazine for it. I also finished rewriting a picture book manuscript and sent it to an agent I met this past Fall at a conference in Iowa. Then, I rewrote the ending for a non-fiction magazine article (for kids) and sent it to my ICL (Institute for Children's Literature) instructor.

Other than that, I got most of the craft room organized. I still need to finish cleaning 3 y.o.'s room, so she can actually use her own room!

Yesterday and today, we went to a visitation and a funeral. It was for my husband's great-aunt. She was a sweet woman.

Tonight, I had Bible study. Before hand, I went shopping and got a present for 16 y.o. He will be 17 on Saturday.

Hebrews 13:20-21 May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Great writing accomplishments, Patricia! :)

My sympathies on the loss of your great-aunt-in-law.

Thank you, Marcia!

This week is pretty busy with errands for other family members. I am going to try to write first thing each morning for at least 1 hour.

I'm trying not to count how many days it's been since I sent a PB manuscript to an agent. She probably has a life other than reading my manuscript! I met her at a SCBWI conference.

Thank you for your condolences.
