SCBWI-Tulsa. My husband and I enjoyed an amazing trip to Oregon and Washington for a family reunion and viewing of breath-taking sights. I spent one weekend before the trip and one after, mentoring other writers, and throughly enjoyed an evening celebrating the sale of a friend's book. Every activity over the last month was significant and necessary, but I'm determined to spend the next month immersed in my novel--editing, polishing, making it shine. So, here I go. Updates to come.
