I started working on my February article for Two-Lane Livin', it is due on Saturday. My article in December was titled "Collecting Memories." You can go here and check out all of my past articles.
I need to sharpen my pencils and get back to my writing.
I have many stories, but they are not going to get published sitting inside my hard drive. I am going to get serious and send out my Middle Grade story, The Family Secret to publishers. . . again. I need to get out my Picture Book manuscripts and send a few out. And while I am waiting the loooong wait to hear back about them, I need to start a few new stories. I have been very lazy with my writing lately and someone needs to slap me on my hand with a ruler. That's what the teachers used to do when I was in grade school. They held out your palm and slapped you with a ruler. Now a days, teachers would get in trouble for doing that. It never hurt me, though, it only took one time and I learned my lesson. I never did anything else to get the ruler slap again!
So, I think I am going to spray on some of my Infini perfume my husband gave me for Christmas, look at my pretty Fenton vase and bird my boys gave me and try to wake up and get to work.
I hope all of you had a nice Christmas.
Is it hard for you to get back to work, too?
