Sorry for the mess my blog has been this week. You may blame Mother Nature and her very clever idea that we should have 2 feet of snow for Halloween 🙂 Talk about trick vs. treat! I’m still playing catch-up, so today’s post will be a bit of a smorgasbord – not that I haven’t done that before 🙂
Included in today’s awesomeness will be Fun Foto, Warm Fuzzies #2, and the October Pitch Pick.
That’s a lot to pack into a Friday. But after all, it IS Friday, so the weekend is coming and I know you are all full of happiness and enthusiasm about that, so hopefully you will feel generous with your energy and wade on through so we can get back on track next week! Anyone who is in a hurry should feel free to skip to the part that’s most relevant to them… no hard feelings… (although I did get up at the crack of dawn and slave over all the parts… ) (oops, did I say that?!) I promise, I’ll try to be brief. For me 🙂
(This is the part where no one will point out that if I was technologically able in ANY way I would have long since figured out how to schedule posts ahead and then if my power went out it wouldn’t matter and I would never have gotten behind in the first place. Thank you all for not mentioning that :))
So. Fun Foto. Technically, we’re not doing it this week because
we didn’t get it together we knew you were too busy! But I hate to skip it altogether, so here is my themeless Fun-not-really-a-Foto just for kicks:
|Isn’t it sweet? Write a story about this!
Anyone else who wants to put up a themeless foto, friendly for kids ages 0-12, feel free to post your link in the comments. And for one of the best photos I’ve seen in a long time, check out Cynthia’s blog, Random Thoughts, from yesterday. Is that a great photo or what?! 🙂
Onto Warm Fuzzies Week #2:
This week’s task: post a picture or piece of music that describes your WIP. Then in the comments, people are supposed to guess what your WIP is about 🙂
Here’s my picture for that:

Any guesses? Remember, I write picture books 🙂
And finally (we’re moving right along, aren’t we? I’m being so brief!) it’s time for Pitch Pick #3!!! One lucky participant is going to get her pitch read by the epitome of awesome editors, Erin Molta!!! To refresh your memory, the October contestants are listed below.

Thank you all for your patience this week. Hopefully next week will be a little less crazy! Oh, and since people have expressed interest, we will be having a Thanksgiving Contest of some sort, so feel free to leave me words that evoke Thanksgiving for you in the comments!
Have a great weekend!!!
