|Zoom-Zoom, NYC - February, 2013.|
|The light of Central Park upon leaving.|
The story for my picture book is currently in "RE-Draft-Mode," thanks to the lovely assistance of the 16 others who nudged me in a the right direction. At least one significant goal was completed over this long weekend: I finally conjured up a name for my giraffe character. I can't take the credit for this because my mentor/roommate/former-professor (Sheli Petersen) came up with his name, just before the start of the conference.
Now that the conference is over, a whole new set of goals have been appointed. These include:
- Revision #... 4 or 5 (?) of my PB (Giraffe) story
- Storyboarding the book
- Dummy book assembly (praying for a March/April deadline)
- My first book submission (aww!)
- My second EVER postcard blast (Late February/Early March)
New postcards are on order... along with some stickers (naturally!) Since I haven't been too far removed from the SCBWI calendar, I've signed up for the New England Chapter SCBWI conference for this May. February and March are almost booked up with weekend activities, so I'm returning to a busy-busy schedule. Nevertheless, I'm inspired, (almost) revitalized, and ready to get things rolling.
