Well, I had planned to write tonight, but instead, chose to sit down and begin hand writing myself a 2016 list of AAR agents. My goal is tomorrow night, sit down and begin emailing Barney & Lexi out and mail a copy or two out on Saturday. I have been turned down by many of the names that I have seen on the list but each one will get the two lost friends again. Why? Well, fact is, so agents don’t even read queries and toss handfuls away to lower the ‘slush’ pile load. I stopped at 50 agencies complete with names, addresses and email info. Here they come!!
I also wrote my SCWBI group on Yahoo and began seeking out thoughts on my query for B&L. I look forward to some great answers back tomorrow!
My subscription to Poets & Writers is running out and the cash is tight, I hope I can renew soon. I believe things will work out! 🙂
Last night, my oldest son spent the night with me. Wednesday nights are his night just us guys. He has Jazz Band every Thursday morning at 7a.m. and I take him to school to rehearse. I love my nights with him! I am far from a cook, therefore we had baked fish and cheese filled breadsticks, yum! He crashed before he could finish his meal though, so I sat and wrote last nights talk with you. I enjoy our talks as well! 🙂
My ‘Never Quit’ video is now on youtube and it is my hope that you or someone you know may stop by and become lifted by it. Click below to see it!
I spoke with my sons first grade teacher and am scheduled to read to the class this Spring!! I am so excited and just can not wait!! When he finds out, he will have a complete happy meltdown and ask about it for the next two months! 🙂
I also took an email from a local high school lit teacher who has asked if I will speak to her Children’s Lit class next Fall when the class begins. I and siked about that and can not wait!
I also took an email from the Lawrence County Historical Society and look to be rescheduled for my picture book lecture later this year. I can’t begin to tell you how I am ready to do this after having to cancel last year.
Well, that’s about it for tonight. I hope you have a wonderful Friday and find a way to be grateful and Live With Passion!
