Okay, I know it’s not New Year’s Day but, with the help of a little nudge by Jill Corcoran, I am determined to blog regularly. 

 

My schedule:

 

Monday: What am I reading?

 

Tuesday: Writing Challenges

 

Wednesday: Anything Day

 

Thursday: Industry news

 

Friday: Useful Information 

 

Looks like today is “Useful Information Day”

 

Recently, I attended the NJ SCBWI Conference. We were given a sheet of paper with the names of the agents and editors in attendance and the genres that peek their interests. I’ll share:

  • Yay, you’re back in the saddle. And thank you google alerts for helping me find you so quickly…on my name, not yours:)

    You are a great blogger. Can’t wait to read more.

    I think by publishing this information you are really helping writers best direct submissions to the correct editors and agents, something editors and agents truly appreciate.

    I’m adding you to my blog roll on my blog right now.

    Happy blogging, Colleen:)
