Happy Friday! At least for a few more minutes. The midnight hour is almost upon us as I sit here at the keyboard. I hope this finds you looking forward to a fun weekend, whether it be relaxing on your porch, getting some much-needed chores done, or enjoying the many autumn festivities.
Whatever your plans, I promise not to keep you too long. One this, one that and I’m outta’ here!
I first want to reiterate how helpful it is to be on Twitter. Besides the professionals (authors, agents etc.) and fellow writers I have begun to connect with, I have discovered some great blogs, articles and websites. A blog that I came across is one that I reference here quite often. I found it by following Writer’s Digest: Chuck Sambuchino’s Guide To Literary Agents Blog. Author Laurie Halse Anderson also has a terrific blog that offers a lot of insight into the writing process. There are more, but I promised not to take long here! To underscore this, here is a comment left by our former Twitter Administrator, the lovely Kerry Aradhya – “I agree that Twitter, especially, is great for helping feel part of the writing/illustrating community. And it’s such a nice community to be part of.”
And speaking of our nice community…regional member Ron Smith shared some terrific news with us – “I just signed with Adriann Ranta of Wolf Literary! The book is a middle grade southern gothic with supernatural elements. At least that’s what I call it. I’m sure it’ll change!”
Congratulations, Ron! We’re all looking forward to your future success!
Have a fabulous fall weekend, friends! 🙂
