Writer Mama Update

Well, mamas, things have been pretty busy around here as usual.

I just got back from mailing all the gifts and the last round of books for the winners and hostesses of the Writer Mama Tw0-Year Anniversary Blog Tour. (Finally!)

I just want to say, WOW, that was a lot of work. And so, so worth it. 🙂

Thanks for participating! Here’s a link to the hostesses and winners again.

And special thanks to my editor, Jane Friedman. You can RSS subscribe to her blog here or follow her on Twitter @JaneFriedman.

You can follow me on Twitter too, I’m @thewritermama.

Here’s what’s on my plate for this week:

Pitch AWP Panels for April 2010 (Okay, it’s weird to actually type “2010”)

Prepare for Trip to Seattle to speak at three King County libraries

Wrap up two classes, WPSS & PP (both offered again this fall, in August and October respectively)

Prepare for classes that begin May 6th, Craft a Saleable Nonfiction Book Proposal & the first Turn Your Specialty Into Course Curriculum

Turn in draft of webinar: Are you a specialist or a generalist?

Draft letter of rec for Northwest Author Series Student Intern

Write, polish, & submit two articles

Prepare the May issue of Writers on the Rise for publication

Set goals and May schedule with new assistant 🙂

Get ready for my trip to NYC to participate in the Writer’s Digest/BEA Writer’s Conference

And…prepare for interview with Cory Doctorow

No problem, right?

In the meantime, here’s some happy news:

Debbie Simorte placed two articles she drafted in my January WPSS class. Read about it and other success stories by clicking the “Success” tab and scrolling down. Way to go, Debbie!

Jenny Kales and Mary Jo Campbell both scored some press for their respective passions. Jenny was featured in the Pioneer Local Press (link is to her blog) and Mary Jo in www.mysuburbanlife.com.

Hear what a mother of six thinks of Writer Mama: Nicole O’Dell plugged Writer Mama in her blog, Trivial Pursuits and Other Ramblings.

LOOK! My first Amazon UK review for Writer Mama. Many thanks to Amanda for such a thoughtful review.

Write on, mamas! And don’t forget to make good things happen…

    Thanks for the plug Christina! I just saw this post and was surprised to see my name. 🙂 As always, you’re so supportive of your former students and we appreciate it! 🙂
