Children’s book author funny

Some quick fun laughs today for children’s book authors. Jerry Seltzer offers an inspired comic strip just for us: Tori Stellar: Children’s Book Author. I love the fourth one down with the children’s fan letter. Hilarious.

Also, on cute and funny things, I posted a picture of my Newtie into yesterday’s post. I miss him terribly, but he’s inspiring me.

National Novel Writing Month is coming up next month. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s an opportunity to participate in a race to write 50K words in a month. Last year, I was revising my first novel during November, so I used NaNoWriMo to keep me on track with revising every day.

This year, I had been toying with the idea of doing full participation and trying to write a new 50K novel in the month, but I just finished my second novel and need to start revising it. Besides, to be honest, I’m so impressed with people who can write 50K in a month along with everything else they’re doing. It took me three months to write my second novel, and I thought that was good. 50K in one month! I’m officially intimidated.

But I will be revising through November. In fact, I’m going to start tomorrow, mainly because I need something to focus on with Newtie gone. So, there will be a new goal countdown starting tomorrow. Goal: Revision complete by the end of November.

What are you working on?

    Kids books are so cute and so funny. Just read one tonight to my kids titled, “Runt Farm: Under New Management” the first book in the new farm series,
    written by Amanda Lorenzo. I giggled through most of it- such a cute story about cute little animals taking over the management of a farm when the farmer decides to abandon it. Can’t wait to read the next book in the series Runt Farm: Beatrice and Blossom.

What do you think?
