Happy May everyone! Always a favorite for me as it’s my birthday month.
And April wasn’t too shabby either! Although I did not complete a new PB draft or revise an existing one, I did successfully lead the first (now annual!) Writer’s Renaissance retreat in Florence, Italy. I still get goose bumps over the memories. It was that good. I hope some of you will consider joining me next year. Even if you can’t come (if you are a man, for instance), you can follow along vicariously on its new Facebook Page. So yes, I’ve kept busy in spite of the lack of draft for April. 😉
Quick reminder: Submissions to our April featured agent Susan Hawk will close today at 6:00 p.m. EST/3:00 p.m. PST SHARP! Our May featured agent, Elizabeth Harding, will begin accepting submissions tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. EST.
Okay folks. It’s your turn to report. Did you or did you not write a new draft and or revise an existing draft in April?
