Three quick updates from my desk.
1. Had a fabulous meeting with my critique group on Sunday morning. I’d submitted a (massively) revised version of the picture-book manuscript that the group had examined a couple of months ago. It was wonderful to receive consensus acknowledgment that the work is considerably improved.
And speaking of consensus: We all agreed that this weekend’s feedback from one group member essentially provided a “master-class” in children’s picture-book bio-writing. (I added, only half-joking, that this group member will deserve co-author credit, if my ms ever gets published.) Now, to revise (again! more!). But not quite so drastically, this time.
2. Received helpful edits (and only a couple of questions, which I was able to handle) for an essay that will post this weekend. (Yes, I will share it on social media!)
3. And at this time of year, I’m prompted to re-up “Fidelis,” a short story that was commissioned for NPR’s “Hanukkah Lights” broadcast.
