Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the Midwest Writers' Workshop, in Muncie, Indiana. It was a great conference and I learned a lot of cool new things, including some great tips on ways to improve my blog that I'll be incorporating over the coming weeks.

I also met bunches of new people (bear in mind that I'm kind of an introvert, so my idea of "bunches" and yours may differ) and was invited to join a cyber-critique group.

While I was there, I pitched my recently completed manuscript to Jessica Sinsheimer of the Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency and she asked me to submit my first hundred pages!

Family and friends, please note: for the next 96 hours I will be polishing prose like a madwoman. If you don't hear from me, it doesn't mean I don't love you anymore. It just means I'm in hot pursuit of a dream.

Don't you just love being a chocolate covered raisin?
Good news about your book. Sometimes I find it hard to understand - about the grandmother thing. Pam
