Friday Five

1) I have been a busy writer girl this week. I completed the outline for Summer 2010 YA, and have 7500 words written of the manuscript. It is going well. I think.

2) Also working simultaneously on my NASCAR fic. I did the math and discovered between the two, I must write 8,000 words every single week. Um, no pressure. ha.

3)I am still over the moon excited about the TIME magazine thing. I actually keep looking at it thinking that there is someway I am mistaken.

4)I also have a 1 page article in THE WRITER magazine (page 14!) for those who want to read it. It's my advice on doing everything you can to be published-- and such advice includes: Know as much about the business as you do the craft.

5)I am getting excited about going to New York in Two weeks!! EEE!! There's a very good possibility I'll take part in a giant YA signing on Saturday, July 25th, so if you're a new yorker, keep that afternoon open-- there may be 10 of us hanging out and signing. :-)

Very, very excited for you, Mandy! I can't wait to see your media coverage!

Who else is signing with you? (My entire DAY is free. So lunch/dinner/signing...I'm open. LOL There may even been singing and dancing involved!)

And do you know if The Writer magazine is online? I don't subscribe and you really...well *I* don't see it anywhere besides my local library. I'm just curious how one can go about seeing your article. :-)

And again, YAYYYYY for TIME! (And Abbie Breslin. And Callie. And Emily. And Alex.)

Also what is your NASCAR book about?

Um so it's really weird, after seeing your LJ icon for more than a year, to see the actual book sitting here in my living room. I feel like there is a LJ icon on my couch.
