WriteOnCon 2013

So, you all know about WriteOnCon, right?

What?! You don't?

If you write middle grade, YA, picture books, or NA, you need to check this out. It's a free, online kidlit conference on August 13 and 14. Because it's online, there are TONS of agents and editors and authors, all willing to offer you free writing advice!

And WriteOnCon has forums where you can post your query letter, your first 250 words and/or your first five pages. Other writers will pop in and give you feedback so you can edit your query/250/1st 5 into perfect, shiny words to possibly catch the eye of a Ninja Agent roaming the forums.

I love WriteOnCon. No, I never got any ninja requests the two years I participated, but I learned so much and had FUN and got free advice on my writing. Not too shabby for free, huh?

So get on over there. Yours truly is wandering the MG forums leaving comments. :)

Word Count!

I had so much fun participating in July's Camp NaNoWriMo as I did first-pass revisions on KSFD, my current WIP. As is my track record with anything NaNoWriMo, I didn't finish. :)

So, to keep up with the public accountability thing, I installed a Word Meter gadget on the side of the blog that I plan to update as I revise.

Go me!

If you don't see that meter moving for a couple of days, please bug me. :)
