Anyone who wants to happy dance with me over finishing a picture book manuscript that I'm excited about can start dancing . . .
. . . NOW!
This picture book has actually had a title (which I think I'll keep to myself just a bit longer) for about five years, and I've written two or three other stories with different characters and story lines, stories that made me say, "Meh." I'm excited to revise this one into something I can query or submit. So I'm giving myself a September 21st deadline to complete Shelley's dare. After all, that's technically the end of summer, right?
Because I have this other manuscript (still under 90,000 words) that I'm working on until Wednesday.
What are you excited about right now?
