I haven’t written a blog post since December for several (good) reasons. The first reason you will be excited to hear is that I was focusing on finishing my edits to my middle grade fantasy and my picture books and then focusing on re-editing as I heard from beta readers.
The second reason the jury is still out on whether it is a good thing, (I am joking!) my husband was nominated for a bishopric position within the Anglican Church of Canada. In January he was elected. This means a move and huge changes in both our personal and professional lives. This is very exciting and a chance for us both to explore and grow in different ministries!
One advantage of being a writer who works from home most days is that showings, packing, or quarantine don’t affect my ability to write. Over, the past 4 months my mind and time was and will continue to dedicate my time to polishing my books and packing to prepare for the move so I may not blog as often as I was or should be.
Speaking of quarantine, did everyone remember to stock up on books to read? Sadly, I packed my to-be-read pile, but since I live with a bookworm, so he had no objections to buying me a few more! With the schools shutting down, this was the perfect time to send my fantasy out to young beta readers. I think I am more worried to hear from the kids than I was to hear from the adult beta readers. No, that’s an understatement, I am terrified to hear from the kids.
