So much to do before I leave again this Friday for Lisa Wheeler's Picture Book Boot Camp. I've been feeling a little overwhelmed that I only have two days this week with the kids at school - then I got today's mail. A wonderful contract arrived from Children's Better Health Institiute. Almost two years ago they wanted to buy my poem "Pinata" and now it will appear in their May/June issue of Humpty Dumpty magazine. Can't wait to see the illustration. Hooray! That really gave me a boost with my writing for today. Less than a week left. I just can't believe that.
Keep writing fellow marathoners - we're almost there!
Cathy grew up in Illinois and still remembers the first time she heard one of her elementary teachers read poetry from Shel Silverstein's "Where the Sidewalk Ends". She was hooked! Cathy's poetry has appeared in the anthologies "AND THE CROWD GOES WILD!: A GLOBAL GATHERING OF SPORTS POEMS" and "LADYBUG, LADYBUG AND OTHER FAVORITE POEMS". She is also published in the following magazines: LADYBUG, HIGHLIGHTS HIGH FIVE, HIGHLIGHTS HELLO, TURTLE, HUMPTY DUMPTY, HOPSCOTCH, YOUR BIG BACKYARD, CONFETTI and WEE ONES, U.S.KIDS as well as Mc GRAW HILL EDUCATIONAL TESTING.
