This past weekend I spent Saturday at a writing conference put on by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI)’s northern California regional branch. It was great.
I paid for a critique and was put with an editor who gave me some amazing feedback that was so helpful. I also came back to my hotel room and found a rejection from an agent who basically said the same thing as this editor.
I need to DIG DEEPER and make each word count more.
I am great at story ideas and great at dialogue. Unfortunately, this book cannot be dialogue driven. It just doesn’t work for this story.
So, my MONDAY GOALS are this.
Start revising and write every day.
What about you??
