Writing Update, With Links!

I have been COLLABORATING on the epic Children's novel with my co-author for two weeks. Man, does it ever feel good! The new edits to the plot and setting that he has sent me so far made me giddy.

I found Tate Publishing, and wonder if they might enjoy the children's novel? They are a Christian publisher, and we are pushing the boundaries of Love in this story, along with fantastic elements. Morally, it is sound. Theologically, it is non-denominational.

Right now, the burden of work is on him, so I am free to work on other projects; like the missing screenplay that I finished and let Google Docs eat. I deleted it, I guess, without making extra sure I had a complete backup saved.

Or I could choose to polish up one of my short stories for a writing contest, or my self-publishing endeavor.

LINKS THIS WEEK
