If you’ve been on my blog at all this week, you know I’m in the middle of an impromptu blog tour to promote my MeeGenius Author’s Challenge story, A TROOP IS A GROUP OF MONKEYS.  As such, I’m taking a week hiatus from posting on The Artist’s Way.  I am still doing my morning pages to keep the consistency, but I just didn’t have the mental or emotional bandwidth to take on Chapter 5 in the midst of this contest.  So I’ll be back with that next week.

In the meantime, I’m honored to be guest posting over at Jumping The Candlestick today – blog of Michigan picture book author Debbie Diesen.  This is particularly special because my kids love her book, THE POUT-POUT FISH so much that she is a true-blue celebrity to them.  So now they think I’m really hot stuff.  I’m sure that will last for about 2 whole minutes.  Anyway, drop by and say hi if you can!
