I'm so proud to be on another short list (of 20, so it's not that short). Can Hens Give Milk? is being recognized a little south of here by our neighbours in Washington State.
Meanwhile, I'm doing my best to keep focus on my current projects. I hope all you writers out there are not letting the summer prevent you from working on your works in progress. Of course, in Vancouver we have had enough rainy days to keep me glued to the computer. I did venture out, one sunny day, to UBC library to borrow a book - research for one of my stories. I have to face the fact that my possible (probable) ADHD makes it difficult for me to focus on one manuscript at a time. But every day I work on something. Right now I'm having fun with two sequels to a story that's been accepted for publication. The publisher might not want the sequels, but I'm enjoying writing them.
I attended a graphic novel writing workshop last weekend, taught by excellent teacher, writer, illustrator, artist, Kathie Shoemaker. She was so inspiring that I'm transforming my dog detective story into a graphic novel. Not easy, but fun, challenging, and a good exercise. So, I'm pretty busy, and I hope you are too. Do you have a story that would work as a graphic novel? Give it a try.
