Peanut Butter and Jelly Postings on Marcie Colleen's blog

     While August has been a break from posting here, I have posted elsewhere.

     One of my critique partners, Marcie Colleen, had the idea for our group to put together "peanut butter and jelly" picture book pairings. These are books that are even better when read together - although the books I picked are awesome on their own!
     Our whole critique group participated, so there is a long list - 16 amazing pairings.

      If you haven't read all the books on our list yet, they come highly recommended. And I have to say we're a finicky bunch!

Where's Wendy?

Albuquerque to Flagstaff - a LONG way from Phillly
So, I disappeared.

I wasn't planning to make myself so scarce online, but sometimes life does that and while my schedule has been craziness I wouldn't change a thing. Well . . . maybe the weather in the Midwest. A little less excitement on that front would have saved us a few hours of backtracking.

Yeah, while I was "gone" I was back and forth across the country, twice (four back and forths). Three times by air, once in a Budget truck.

None of this was directly related to writing except to the extent that everything that informs and changes me becomes part of the well from which my stories spring.

Will my posts be back in a regular groove?
Not promising anything yet. We have one week before the back to college frenzy and then one more road trip in the yet unscheduled future. There will be posts, but they may not be back to a regular schedule yet. Just keeping it real.
