A Roundup of Links
I'm trying to spellcheck, wordcount, hunt for a specific error that may or may not exist, and print the eighth draft of the book that's supposed to come out next week. So I'm going to try to do a roundup of some links I've found recently.

This article about Louise Rennison is far more interesting. (Thanks to ACHOCKABLOG for the link.

The Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards have been announced. Notice that Kalpana'sDream by Judith Clarke won a little something? I haven't read it, but I'm a big fan of one of her earlier books--The Heroic Life of Al Capsella.
Well, that manuscript isn't printing itself, which means I have to go.
