Last week, I asked you if you had a plan and I told you mine. Saturday, I began on my health plan. By going six days a week at an extreme fitness gym and following their nutrition plan, I can already see a visible difference in me. (I'm not talking about the fact that I'm limping today, LOL.) I am being really focused. (Everyone claps...)
I realized I need to be like this with my writing too.
Lenny and I working on a picture book. We chatted about it for quite a while today. I'm not sure if this is how you partner up to write a book, but this is how we are doing it. He's writing the first draft and I'm consulting. Then he'll send it to me. Then I'll send it back to him and we'll chat. We'll keep doing that until it is perfect and then we'll send it to some of our great bloggy friends for a critique and more revisions until it's polished and ready to submit.
I read YELLOW STAR by Jennifer Roy. If you get my Goodreads updates or my tweets you'll know I was blown over by the story and the writing. It made me waver a bit about the importance of my hf story compared to something so compelling, but thanks to some supportive friends (waves Theresa and Len) I'm back on track and want to finish my hf mg novel, NOT A HOLIDAY. Lenny has promised to be (on my case) super supportive over the next month so I can get close to having the first draft done.
Soooooo, I'm going to take a working break from blog posting until Valentine's Day. Then I will give you a full report (accountability is so important) on my progress. Until then I am giving away three books. All you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment.

(a writing craft book)
I hope you are having an amazing month!
Hugs to all... (Be safe if you are driving on icy roads.)
