Cleaning up house, manuscripts and blog, giving everything a fresh start.
Contest update: The "Why I Write" essay made it through the contest with a nice rating and a spot in the Smashwords e-book, whenever that decides to be made available on-line. No sign of it yet.
But moving on with the MG novel... After the Bloom mystery novel contest, a couple agents have "waffled" on it and a few others said they didn't "connect". So, the winter months have been spent back on the sunny Greek island of Delos (mentally, anyway) with my main characters. Major re-write of the beginning so hopefully more agents and editors will "waffle" in my favor with the next round of submissions.
Looking forward to the spring SCBWI contest next month!
