It's time once again for Alex Cavanaugh's Insecure Writers Support Group post. I can't begin to explain the overwhelming support this group has been for me over the past year. I've met so many fantastic writers and made tons of friends. Feeling insecure about your writing? Have a little enthusiasm to share? Either way, we'd love to have you join us!
November brings around (turkey!) one of my favorite holidays, (pie!) family gatherings, (casseroles!) and (more pie!) a time of reflection and being thankful. (Can you tell I love to eat?) In honor of November's insecure writers post, I'm thankful for all of you, my blogger buddies and IWSG members, and most of all, Alex for hosting such a terrific group!
I'm also thankful for Caroline Lee, my fabulous illustrator for Little A. Without her and her beautiful illustrations, Little A. would still be merely words. Together, the words and images are magic.
For now, I'm still walking around in my blissful, I-recently-published-a-children's-ebook state. Plans for getting Little Acorn's Big Fall (Do you underline titles of ebooks?) uploaded onto Createspace and into printed form are next on my agenda.
I'm quite positive we all have different views on self-publishing, but it's the route I'm taking for the printed version of Little A. Ebooks are great and serve a specific purpose, but I want to hold our book in my hands, smell the pages (I know, quirky.).
And don't get me started on all of the library / school visits, public talks, book signings, I'm dreaming of scheduling next year! I could ramble on and on about how thrilled I am! I'm also envisioning my acorn hat I want to design. I can see it now, me sitting there, reading to kiddos, showing them my collection of acorns, with an acorn perched on my head. Then, I'll surely be known as a real nut-job. :P
I hope all of you are enjoying your writing and / or revising. Share with us in the comments, what you're thankful for in your writing life.
Happy Turkey Day Y'all...gobble, gobble!
