What Did You Do This Week, Gail? Feb. 24 Edition.
Goal 2. YA Thriller. Did some more reading of engineering essays to come up with a significant point for a secondary character. Jotted down some notes last weekend regarding my central crime.
Goal 3. Generate New Work With Good Women. Finished underpainting or blueprinting (whichever metaphor you prefer) the chapter about the Christmas pageant. Have already decided I want to change the tone. The next chapter is going to be very short, and between what I'd already done with it and what I did this week, I think it's safe to say that's ready for May.
Goal 3. Generate New Work With Picture Book Study. I signed up for Read For Research Month, hoping to shape up the picture book manuscript I've completed or, hey, do some other picture book work. I also began looking for and collecting the picture books I'll need to read next month to take part in that challenge. That's going to be a lot of work.
Goal 4. Community Building/General Marketing/Branding. Did three blog posts and promoted
them in the usual places. Did two Goodreads reviews. Started the March Connecticut Children's Literature Calendar. I also brought my historical fiction Pinterest board up to date.
