Sure, I could be dancing and singing and tooting my horn on this New Year’s Eve. But I couldn’t let the old year totter out without celebrating all the picture books I wrote!
I’m not saying they’re super fantastic picture books. I’m not even saying they’re semi-decent. All I’m saying is that I wrote 12 (possibly lousy) picture books in 2012. But it’s words on the page, people. And that’s 12 drafts of something I can work on in 2013.
You know, maybe I will dance and sing and toot my horn on this New Year’s Eve after all.
(And I hope you’re celebrating tons of writing achievements tonight as well. Thanks so much for joining me here in 2012–and see all y’all next year!)
Cathy–Congratulations on writing 12 picture books. May 2013 find you revising all 12 and submitting them.
Oooooh! That would be SUPER, Sioux! I’d even settle for submitting half (because honestly, some of ’em really stink.) 🙂
Wow! Twelve books. You are amazing. MAy those books find a library or book store shelf to be displayed on in 2013. Hope you danced and tooted all night. Your horn! Happy New Year from St. Louis.
Hahahhaa! Thanks, Linda! I danced a little, sang a lot. No tooting. My horn, that is. 🙂
Way to go, Cathy. Happy new year, and I hope to see your books in print soon!
Congratulations, Cathy! I hope to see your books in print in 2013!
Wouldn’t that be great, Suzanne? I guess I should probably submit them first. 🙂
It’s sometimes a lot easier having something to work with than it is staring at a blank page, isn’t it? Happy 2013!
SO true, Madeline! And happy 2013 back at ‘cha! 🙂
Here’s hoping 2013 will see you singing, dancing, and tooting horns all year long! Happy New Year, Cathy!
Thanks, Robyn! I sure hope so! And happy New Year to you, too!
