You are now entering the world of my thoughts.

This blog is my diary of works in progress. The only way a writer can improve upon her skill is to practice, practice and practice some more. Here, in this place of quiet peace, I pen to paper my thoughts and creativity. Welcome to my world.

12x12x12 Blog Partay!!!!!!

It is here, the month of December, the finale, the end of the year! For the past 12 months I have put myself to the challenge of writing 12 picture book manuscripts starting from the beginning of the year until December. A manuscript a month!

I am sooooooooooooooo happy to say..........

I DID IT!!!!!

I completed the challenge, though it was a little touch and go. As you can see from my 12x12x12 list, there were a couple of months that I came up empty handed. Thanks to a wonderful, supportive group, the 12x12ers on facebook, I did not let that keep me down. I picked myself up, brushed myself off and pushed on. My favorite month has to be DECEMBER! Again, if you look at my list, I wrote 4 manuscripts this month, the last three all on the same day (the inspiration behind the last three stories are actually quite funny. :D)

To celebrate my triumph, I am gifting a cute notebook/journal for the upcoming....... 12x12 in the year 2013!! So if you are planning on joining the fun, check out Julie Hedlund's blog and don't forget to fill out the rafflecopter!!

My favorite month this year was September. I found out I was pregnant with my second baby and my oldest girl had celebrated her 2nd birthday! September was awesome!

Congratulations, Saba! Well done! Isn't it awesome to have 12 drafts? I'm glad to see I'm not the only one whose creativity seems to come in fits and starts :) I also had some months with feast and others with famine :) Looking forward to 12 in '13!
