I've crawled out of my cave...temporarily!

During the month of November, I participated in the NanoWriMo 50,000 word challenge. I woke up daily at 4:30 am and regurgitated my YA novel, Like Vanessa. Desperate to enjoy Thanksgiving, I threw together a mish mosh ending that I was NOT satisfied with. But, hey, at least I'd written 50,000 words, right? Bring on the stuffing!

Fast forward through the holidays and the New Year, I pondered on what the proper ending should be for my project. Finally in February, I spent the month fleshing everything out and came up with an ending that I can be happy with. (And dare I say, this new ending leaves room for a sequel?)

I'm looking forward to the months that lie ahead. A lot of exciting things are happening or about to happen.First, registration for the June SCBWI Conference is coming up on March 22. Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm absolutely OBSESSED with this conference! Next, I'm in the process of combing through my novel before I hire an editorial consultant to help me present my best work for the conference. Lastly, I'm starting to dip my toes into the world of Freelance Writing and I've created a website that combines both my children's and freelance writing interests. Here's my new website So far, I've gotten two assignments and I couldn't be happier.

Things are looking up....
