I can't imagine anyone remembers this blog. I've mostly forgotten about it. But, because I have lots and lots of things to do, I am procrastinating by catching up with it.
Here's a quick round up:
It amazes me, but my gorgeous little boy is nearing 11 months old; I am addicted to his smiles. My kitchen is still not finished, but we're almost there. Undiscovered Voices 2010 has wrapped up for us organisers; we're just waiting with fingers crossed for news of book deals. www.undiscoveredvoices.com. The next publishing event from me is a Children's Book Circle panel event on the Google Books Settlement www.childrensbookcircle.org.uk in early April. I've got some serious under-contract writing on the horizon and I'm so excited about it. I'm leading a super-secret, mega-exciting iniative that could make life better for lots and lots of people. I'm giving a talk to a group of 8-12 year old passionate readers and it's the thing I'm most nervous about. I have not done any actual exercise in months but I have been cooking up a storm in the kitchen. I just bought two new sweaters that I completely love.
There ya go... should do it for now. I hope it won't be another six months before I get back here again. But maybe you will forgive me if it is?
