Hello blog folk. Would you like the chance at a query critique or a first five pages critique or some other stuff? Hop on over to Shooting Stars and enter!
There's a great contest over at Kidlit.com too, and if I can get my freakin manuscript finished by January 31st, I'm all over it. If you have a finished YA or MG manuscript, then by all means, check it out.
My husband will be out of town soon, and I have this crazy idea that I'm going to finish the manuscript while he's gone. I'll bring the laptop into my bedroom and there will be no one there to tell me to go to bed already, the girls are getting up in three hours. Sure, I will be sleep deprived, but I will have the book done (not edited or anything, but since I'm running it past the critique group as I'm going, it will certainly need less work than my first effort did (and still does).
I'll let y'all know how it goes.
You can quote me - New Leaf has an All Hands On Deck meeting once a week to plot world domination, and stalking of snacks. We open the meeting with an invocation to the book...
