1. I WON A CRITIQUE!!!
2. I have FIVE (and a half) picture book manuscripts that I’m
totally mostly sorta happy with!
3. I’ve gleaned a ton of PB tips from Julie Hedlund and a slew of guest posters over at her blog!
4. I’ve found that I really can write a picture book draft in a day when it’s the last day of the month and I have to get it done in time to sign up for the monthly giveaway (see #1)!
5. Did I mention that I won that awesome critique from Debbie Diesen?
Ummmm…so it looks as if I’ve only made it halfway through the Top Ten List. But that’s okay. I’m only halfway through the 12 x 12 in ’12 challenge. When I finish the challenge in December, I’ll finish the Top Ten list, okay?
Besides, I’m a writer, y’all, not a freakin’ math genius.
P.S. You can zip over to Julie’s where a Halfway Blog Party’s going on all week. You’ll find a ton of bloggers with their own (possibly better than mine) reasons for doing the 12 x 12 in ’12!
