Ah, May. The time for sun and flowers. Unless you live in Colorado, in which case you’ve been soaked in rain ALL month! I’m NOT going to blame the weather for the fact that I did not write a new draft, no matter how badly I wanted to. No, it’s because my head and heart have been completely absorbed by final revisions to my picture book biography.
After Jane Yolen warned us in the May webinar to be sure projects don’t “bleed” into each other, I realized I just had to stick with this one until it was finished. So my goal is to write two or three new drafts in June, because I am ready for some NEW blood in the form of shiny first draft manuscripts. 🙂
Now tell us your progress. Did you complete a draft and/or revision in May? Let us know in the comments and in the Rafflecopter. This month, two lucky winners will get a critique from our Featured Author Stacy McAnulty! Good luck to YOU!
Here is what you need to do to check in for a chance to win a critique from Stacy McAnulty:
- See the Rafflecopter widget at the end of this post that says “Picture Book Critique from Stacy McAnulty” at the top.
- Click on the “Comment on Stacy’s Blog Post” button. It will reveal the task, which is to comment on Stacy’s blog post. If you haven’t comment yet, you can click HERE and comment. Commenting on Stacy’s post and clicking enter will get you one entry in this month’s Rafflecopter whether you completed a draft or not. When you click ENTER on that option in Rafflecopter, the next two options will open up.
- Click on the “Wrote a PB Manuscript” button. This will ask if you completed a PB draft in May. If you did, click ENTER, if you did not, move on to the next step.
- Click on the last “Revised a PB Manuscript” button. This will ask if you revised a PB in May. If you did, click ENTER. If not, move on to the next step.
- Submit your entry. Rafflecopter will track your points.
You have until midnight Eastern on June 1st to enter your results. Rafflecopter will draw a winner and I’ll announce it on the blog on June 2nd.
Shine some light on those ideas and get them in to a draft in June!
