There's only one day left for me to decide if I'm going to participate. Quite frankly (and most untypical for me) I have no idea worth 50,000 words that I haven't begun already. Hopefully, inspiration will strike soon. All I need is a little spark of an idea and off I'll go.

Attended (and spoke at) the Maryland Writers Conference this past Saturday. It turned out to be a great day full of camaraderie and the gathering of useful information. I feel renewed vigor for the writing process and for being a member of the writing community (or tribe, as Marita Golden calls us). Conferences like these allow those of us in this solitary profession to connect with each other and find out what's new; and these days when it comes to writing and publishing there's plenty that's new. The greatest discovery of the day was finding out how lucrative short story ebooks can be. Who knew? Well, now I do. More to come...

2012 is off to a great start. In my personal life, I've found the perfect apartment in the perfect neighborhood at the perfect time. In my writing life, I've joined 12 x 12 in 12 (see the badge) where I will write one PB a month for the next 12 months. (What fun!) I've signed up for another 10 weeks of non-fiction writing workshops. Finally, I've volunteered for the 2012 NESCBWI conference in April. I'm off to a roaring start.
