There’s a ton of writerly happiness floating around the interwebs. Contest wins, agent hookups, publishing deals, book birthdays, etc. If any of the like has happened to you, HUGE congrats!
I have some good stuff to share too:
- REVISIONS ARE FINITIO! Hot damn. Now I just have to pluck up enough courage to send PLEASE STAND BY to my teenage niece/CP/focus group for eviscerating.
- I’m judging Cybils! I really enjoyed the experience last year, and I’m pleased to judge the 2nd round young adult fiction selections again. Nominations start October 1 so if you have some favorites, please speak up!
- Each year, the university I work for selects one book for the entire system to read. Known as the Common Book, it’s given to all first-year students at orientation but everyone on the campuses and surrounding communities are invited to read and discuss it. I’m on the committee tasked with choosing next year’s book. That means I get to read and discuss lots of books with amazing people and get paid for it! Win-win!
What’s good with you? Feel free to brag all over the comments!
