I knew it would be a wonderful day today. It seems as if they come in pairs! Yesterday, I had a great time with the Creative Writing Club at Featherstone Elementary School in Woodbridge, Virginia. This club is organized by a young teacher, Jessica Guerrero and is facilitated by her and another lovely teacher, Mrs. Mc Cloud. The group consists of children in grades 3-5. Amazing! The sweetest children and talented! My word, some of the stories! Forget the spelling and punctuation, these kids can write! Oh, how sometimes, I so miss the classroom
We talked about characters…hey, they were looking at one, or two. I brought my faithful gnome, dragon and lizard with me. And, my favorite thing, I got to read to them and left them with some books. I will be participating in their Book Fair, too! I cannot tell you what a joy it is to be around bright, happy children. I always thank the Guy upstairs for giving this world hope, through them. So that was good day numero uno!
Then, today,I find out that my dear friend, Debs Pouliot, who I have known since we were both young and gorgeous…she still is, has promoted Phillip through her daughter’s school, in Laurel, MD. This woman is, without a doubt talented. She is a mixed media artist and has taught for Michaels, knows all kinds of crafty celebrities and is making bookmarks and jewelry for Phillip! Can you believe? She is so cool…remember “make new friends, but keep the old?” Well, thar ya go! Debs and I have known each other for years and years and reconnected through FB!
And, a publisher that I rejected…yes, I did…has come back to me again, time number 5, I’m not kidding, to offer yet another suggestion to get my book to him.
I’m back working with my favorite illustrator; Above the Stars will be awesome. Another bonus!
Am I blessed, or what!!! My angels are working overtime!
Yes, good days come in pairs but I wouldn’t mind a three-fer.
