Follow me Over to Joan Edwards Blog

Congratulations to Kim Van Stickler who won the ARC of Steering Toward Normal. In her comment she wrote, "I am replying from Ohio where we have one kick-butt state fair every August."

Today I'm guest blogging on Joan Edwards' "Never Give Up" blog. I'm musing about who inspired me as a writer, some advice on how to get your manuscript submission ready, and chocolate. 

PLUS, I'm giving away a 250-word critique. So come on over, and celebrate the New Year with Joan and I!

HI Joan and Carol,
It is true. If we give up, our stories will never get read. Hang in there and keep working on improving and spicing up those stories.
It also takes lots of supportive friends to encourage and push you forward.
Thanks for posting these thoughts. They are always needed..

The dream of writing a children's story/picture book may come to pass for someone that persists and does not ever give up. 2014 may just be the year!!!!
