For a few weeks now, I’ve been just days away from beginning work on the revisions of my YA (possibly upper-middle grade) nonfiction project for Dial. I expect to be just days away for at least a few more days.
How have I managed to avoid getting started? Let me count the ways…
Writing and submitting a polished first draft of a brand-new picture book biography.
Visiting Austin’s BookPeople to sign another batch of copies of The Day-Glo Brothers.
Preparing my presentation on biography writing, which I’ll deliver in one form to Austin SCBWI at our September 12 chapter meeting and in another, longer form, to small groups of aspiring young writers in Central Texas.
