I love Wednesdays because they bring Would You Read It, and Would You Read It means chocolate for breakfast 🙂 (In case you’re new here, Something Chocolate is the official snack for Would You Read It. Pretty much anything qualifies – chocolate chip muffins, chocolate donuts, chocolate croissants, chocolate cereal, hot chocolate or, for the purists, just a good old-fashioned chocolate bar :)) Right now, I’m thinking brownies, although some would say they are not technically breakfast food. Still, they do have eggs in them… 🙂
In case you missed it, yesterday was National Clean Off Your Desk Day.
I didn’t end up observing it… (see above)… which is why I’m still working at the kitchen table… I have a small problem keeping my desk
visible clean. I think it has something to do with creative chaos… That’s the story I’m going with, anyway 🙂
But enough about chocolate and chaos!
Today’s pitch comes to us from Jane, a 75 years young pastoral care worker from Ontario who taught for 28 years, 5 of them in Malaysia. She has written 10 books, mainly for children, which you can see on her website. She blogs at Life Story Writing and has written 15 life stories, some for Hospice patients. Welcome, Jane!
And here is her pitch:
Working Title: Nana, I Miss You
Age/Genre: Picture Book
The Pitch: Jamie, who wants to spend time with his nana, is upset because she becomes seriously ill. But her thoughtful gift, when she finally goes into a hospice, reveals her love and gives him a new interest.
And don’t forget to join us Friday for Perfect Picture Books and a special celebration!
