Get Ready For January 2013!

Hey you beautiful guys and dolls! I'm ready to tackle the New Year and my New Ink in the Book!

Tomorrow, I'll be posting the complete and full (crammed full, actually!) schedule for Operation Agent Ink, which will lead up to the Pitch Opportunity Feb. 8 and 9!

I will also be posting my reflections of 2012 and the changes I anticipate for the coming year.

And, I'll reveal the brand new Ink in the Book and the plans I have for my lovely blog. (Yes, I love my blog, my followers and all those who visit on a regular, or not so regular basis!)

I hope you all had a marvelous Christmas and a Happy New Year. I feel so refreshed and ready to tackle the writing world. I can hardly wait to get back to my ink pen!!

How about you? How was your holiday? Are you excited about the new year and what it holds? Have any new plans?

    1. It's great! I promise! Well, I think it is anyway!See you tomorrow!!

  2. Happy New Year! Look forward to your plans and reflections!

  3. Don't you just love new starts and fresh ideas? I do! I love what I learned about myself and my writing this last year, and I love the doors that are already opening this year. A bit scary? Indeed. But exciting!

  4. My Holiday was great, and I'm hoping that yours was too! I'm excited for what you're doing to the blog. It's going to be awesome, I'm sure!

    There's nothing like starting new and fresh for the New Year. It always makes me excited. :)



  5. My holiday was wonderful, thank you. And congratulations on your good news! There are some new additions on the way for my family as well! On Monday, Jaiden Thomas made his way into the world and my 2nd nephew, and at Christmas dinner, I got the news there will be 3 nieces joining us soon! Not that I don't love my nephews, but now there will be little girls to buy cute things for! :)
    I will admit to being a little lazy during my holiday vacation, and I am ready to get back into the swing of things, thank you do much for organizing this and working hard for us!

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Operation Agent Ink

UPDATE: PLEASE FILL OUT THIS QUESTIONNAIRE AFTER YOU SIGN UP. Have you ever wondered what agents were dying to find in their inbox/slush pile? There have been many times I entered a contest and not even received a comment, not even from one of the agents. Or maybe the agent was kind enough to leave a comment that simply said, "Sorry, this just isn't what I'm looking for, but I love the premise and your voice." I always walk away feeling unsatisfied. If I had known exactly what the agent wanted beyond, "YA" or "Fantasy" I might not have even entered a contest I knew I wouldn't win! Even more, I wasted a very busy agents time! Well, your time of guessing is up! OPERATION AGENT INK to the rescue! That's right! This workshop will help aspiring authors get on the list of an agent's WISH LIST! When the workshop is over, your manuscript will be ready to view by a group of AMAZING agents who are dying to see what you've wri

Insecure Writers Group

Today, my feelings are mixed. On one hand, I've faced more rejection and that's not easy to write about or admit to the world. But I am not crying in my "milk" (no beer, folks:) I want to, but what good would it do??? I received a detailed critique from a "Best First Line" contest. The critique was the best I have ever received and seriously opened my eyes to "how" to improve my writing. Nice! Speaking of critiques, I am still looking for a critique partner. If anyone is looking back, please let me know and we can swap info. I'm sending off a YA query letter and first pages to 3 agents this week. Wish me luck. This will be the first time I have directly contacted and agent with a query. Yes, I'm nervous, so I'm saying again, WISH ME LUCK!!!
