Current Scratch: Schmooze, Agents, Self Published, Best Sellers, Fun

Hi, folks: During the summer, managing a writing a routine can be difficult. Schedules aren't as tight and the heat begs for lazy days. Yes, you might be procrastinating. After you try to fry an egg on the sidewalk and bake some brownies in your car, I hope create fab work!


Our next Schmooze at 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 31, 2013 at the Barnes & Noble, 711 Texas Ave, College Station, TX. Our program will be led by Candilynn Fite. Check out her blog for details about our program. :)

Gentle peer critique begins at 9:30 a.m. Bring 5 copies of up to 5 double-spaced pages.

Summer read? The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp by Kathi Appelt is out. Getting tons of **** ratings...


Overwhelmed by Twitter but want to know what tweeting agents are looking for,  check out this tumblr created to highlight #MSWL -- the literary agent manuscript wish list. Here is the link. 


Read the story of succesful indie author Tommy Cohorst. This might give you a little insight.


Wondering what took off last year in children's publishing. Check out this PW article.


Here is an encouraging little note from Libby Bray. It will cheer you up if you have writing muligrubs. Grab a juice box and head over.

Here is a fun link: Sock puppets tell the hero's journey.

The views expressed here are my own, and not necessarily those of the SCBWI.
