Miriam's Writing and Publishing News.
~ Stories for Children online magazine accepted an article of mine about Chile, and it's in this month's issue! *does happy dance* To see it, click here.
~This is actually the second online article I've had published. The other one was on coffee tasting, and you can find it here.
~ Remember this book? Well I gave it a rest while I moved, and then armed with advice from my writer's group (hi, Amy and Neysa!), a reminder about scaffolding from Rachel's blog and some stellar input from the lovely PJ, I started revising it.
Hardcore revising. Shuffling scenes around, adding new ones, reworking several characters. It is So Much Work. :-( But paradoxically, I'm having more fun with the story than I've had in months. I'm about half done--hopefully that was the hard half--and it's coming together really well.
~ Oh, and BEFORE I FORGET: Amy has been hosting a fundraiser for 826 Valencia, an organization that helps kids who want to write. All you have to do is click on the link above and go follow her blog or leave a comment on her page, stating your favorite flavor of jelly. There's only a day left, so you should check in out!
~ Remember this character? Well he's been to counseling, and he wants to try again. I'll introduce you to him on Wednesday!
