12 x 12 October Check-In!

Hello wizards, witches, and warlocks–otherwise known as picture book authors!

I hope you had a MONSTER month of writing and revising. Despite the fact that my very bones are aching to write something new, I spent my writing time this month deep in revisions–again. They were quite satisfying though, and necessary. NEXT month, I will report at least one new manuscript. I mean it! 🙂

Now tell us your progress. Did you complete a draft and/or revision in October? Let us know in the comments and in the Rafflecopter. This month’s winner will win BOO-LA-LA WITCH SPA, SNOOZEFEST, and CRANKENSTEIN from our October Featured Author Samantha Berger! Happy Halloween and Good luck to YOU!

  1. I managed to squeak out a really rough draft, but it’s a story I’m excited about so will definitely work on the revisions. And also worked on revisions on two previous drafts.

  2. I’ve had a busy month even if it doesn’t feel like it. I edited two books at least twice, I worked on my pitches for four different books to pitch in PbPitch and worked on my covering letters. I also, think I have a new rough idea for a November draft. I might not have written the amount of picture books I would have liked but I’ve got a small number of polished ones 🙂

  3. Happy Halloween, Julie! October has been a rollicking roller coaster for me…in a good way. Because of Susanna Hill’s Halloweensie Contest, I totally got my October pb draft completed. And I just did a total rewrite/revise of an older manuscript that Essie asked to see. And I truly think it is so much better than it was before.

  4. That’s some Halloween book selection! This month was a good month- 1 PB, 1 MG idea with 1.5 chapters done, and some more ideas…I feel like I got out of my 8 month long slump!

  5. This month produced the roughest rough draft. Maybe more of a chart of what’s to happen. But I’m loving the revisions I’ve got going on. I see that as a success.

  6. A good month for sure! Rewrote a PB rhyming and also got an excellent critique from a published author. So now need to start polishing on all my mistakes. This program is an excellent help to drive me forward. Thank you!
