On a note of SUPER news, I've finished revisions on my picture book, and my fabulous agent has put together a great pitch and picked our first round of editors. Now we enter Sub-it-land. Wish us luck!!!!
On Jan. 26th, I turned 4*, yup, it's a secret. o_O Here are a few things I bought myself.
1. WRITING PICTURE BOOKS by Ann Whitford Paul. I simply cannot wait to dive into this one!
2. WARM BODIES by Isaac Marion. No, I'll probably not have it read by Friday when the movie comes out, but a zombie romance, what could be better? Not much. Just saying.
3. 50th Anniversary calendar of WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. Can you believe it? 50 years. Wow.
Just before Maurice Sendak passed away last year, I was sitting in my car listening to Terry Gross on NPR, when she called Maurice Sendak and interviewed him. I hit the ultimate literary jackpot that evening. I laughed. I cried. I found an illustrated snippet of the interview on You Tube. I'd like to share it with you. Don't forget the Kleenex.
~Have a writerly week, y'all!
