I am gathering my notebooks, lucky pencils, and mountainous ambition to put together my first draft of my non fiction proposal this weekend. I am using this proposal resource (follow link at info for writers to how to write a proposal) as a guideline. The island destination, while romantic has been changed to an in town version with an ocean view and wi-fi! I realized I needed easy access to my blog and other resources/supports to do this.
I have also submitted an application to the Parenting.com Mother’s Congress, and accepted an invitation to the Governor’s mansion for tea. (No, not just me. Me and fifty others, who will be celebrating the Raising Readers 10th Anniversary. ) I just turned down an offer to blog for one magazine, because of the lack of compensation. Yet, I have committed to three guest post requests and two blog interviews because of the potential to broaden not only my audience, but also to stretch out the edges of my own thinking.
It feels a little hard to leave the boys for twenty-four hours, but easier now that I’ll be only a few miles away. Uncle and Weezie have it all figured out. Everyone will have a blast without me, I am sure. I have never spent a night away from Marcel. Sam has a few over nights under his bear bear. I am modelling for them things a mommy who is also a writer and who plans on changing the world one book at a time has to do on occasion. Send me your wishes for profound prolificness.
