After 20 odd years of going to school myself, plus the additional years of having 5 children start school ranging from preschool to doctoral candidacy, plus being married to a teacher, I suppose it’s not really surprising that in many ways September feels like the start of a new year.
It’s inspiring and refreshing and invigorating!
It fills me with energy to write new stories!!
It makes me believe I can actually clean my office – this time for real!!!
(But let’s face it… it’s not magic 🙂 If I ever ACTUALLY finish cleaning my office I’ll show you a picture 🙂 I think I’ll have to, just to prove I really did it :))
So with all that energy and inspiration just waiting to be tapped, let’s all make a plan to write something great today, shall we? I think we can do it!
Of course we’ll be able to do it better with Something Chocolate… 🙂 Can I tempt you with torte?
Dark chocolate is good for you.
That is a scientifically proven fact.
Now then, onto today’s pitch which comes to us from Kirsti. Kirsti is a writer, a reader, a mother of five, a marriage and family therapist, and her first picture book is coming out with Character Publishing this fall. It’s called:”The Raindrop Who Couldn’t Fall.” Her blog/website is www.kirsticall.com.
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Upside Down In Frown Town
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 3-8)
The Pitch: Where Sam lives, smiling is frowned upon. But, no matter what he tries, he can’t wipe the smile off his face. Even a frowning contest doesn’t make a frowner out of Sam. But the idea of a challenge may be just what he needs to turn the town around.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Kirsti is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to writing!
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!!!
Oh, and P.S. For those of you wondering about Perfect Picture Books, we will be starting up again, but I can’t do it until next week, Sept. 13. Anyone who wants to go ahead without me on Friday Sept. 6 is welcome to, but I’ve just got too much going on to pretend I’m going to pull it off! 🙂
