Woo-hoo! It’s Wednesday! Which means it’s only 2 days until February! Which means it’s only 3 days until GROUNDHOG DAY!!!!!
Sorry for the shouting, but Phyllis and I are just so darn excited! 🙂
Are you ready for Phyllis’s Fun Photo Contest? (If you need details and the downloadable Phyllis action figure check HERE.)
If you know any good groundhog/Groundhog Day riddles please post them on Phyllis’s FB page. Cathy and Beth have already put up some good ones!
Also, it’s only 2 days until the official start of my course. I’m very excited (and a little nervous!) about that!
So. Who’s in the mood for Something Chocolate? Let me take a peek in my pantry and see what I have today…. Oooh! Yummmm!
We could probably use a glass of milk to go with that…
|chocolate… of course 🙂|
Today’s pitch comes to us from Elaine. Elaine is an elementary school teacher by day, a mother of two (and two furry children) by night and a picture book author every minute in between.
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Slurp, Slurp, Slurp
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-6)
The Pitch: When Becca receives a gecko for her birthday, mayhem ensues when the crickets that were bought to feed it, spill to the floor.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Elaine is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to starting my course… and Groundhog Day!!!
Have a great day, everyone! 🙂
