Those NESCBWI Blogs I Was Talking About

Over two weeks ago I announced my plan to visit all the New England Society of Children's Book Writer and Illustrator blogs listed at the organization's website. And here I am finally getting to a couple more.

I sort of know Jeannine Atkins (we're Facebook "friends"), who blogs at Views From a Window Seat. Hers is another blog that portrays a person living a real writer's life. She submits, she teaches, she attends literary festivals. And you can read about all that activity at Window Seat.

Nandini Bajpai has published short form work, which interests me, since I dabble in that kind of writing, myself. Interesting material from her recent posts: her experience with NaNoWriMo and her part in what she describes as a "Big Fat Indian Wedding."

Gail, your blog was one of the first I ever started reading, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I'm excited that you're thinking about an essay collection, because I love the honesty and humor of your voice. Thanks for reading my blog!

Great timing for that comment, Jeannine. Last night I was thinking that maybe I should stop reading other writers' blogs, because right now they're all able to do much more than I am. Instead of feeling motivated, I was feeling frustrated. But I'm doing much better now.
