Day 22 - Good News Always Helps!

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!


  1. Congratulations on your imminent appearance of your poem. Yahoo!

    Have fun at the PB workshop!

  2. Thanks Jean! And thanks so much to you and Lora for hosting the marathon. It has really been a great experience so far. Now if I could only be this disciplined with exercise...
