It’s been an interesting couple of months. I’ve had my head down working on several projects… thought it might be a good time for a quick rundown.

  • I’m in the proofreading stages for two books The Writers Compass by Nancy Ellen Dodd (a writing guide with an interesting approach using a process of “story mapping”–Due June 2011) and Writing & Selling Your Memoir by Paula Balzer (which is a wonderfully helpful book that’s shaping up to be my personal favorite of the season–it’s chock full of helpful instruction and good advice; also due June 2011).
  • I was just assigned to work on a new bookazine project for Writer’s Digest (a bookazine is a large special issue of the magazine that is essentially book sized, but available as a periodical on newstands). The subject will be Kids and YA (a hot topic, indeed). So that’s exciting. This should be on newstands in July.
  • Other exciting book projects include Al Katkowski’s Question of the Day (based on the popular mobile app–due Sept 2011), Pat Pattison’s Songwriting Without Boundaries (due December 2011; a followup to his popular Writing Better Lyrics), and Jeff Gerke‘s First 50 Pages (which helps you get your submission package in order–due Nov 2011).
  • I’ve also been working on some freelance writing in my spare time.

So lots of stuff going on. I’m trying to keep up the momentum and work on a couple of creative writing projects as well. I think it’s important to try to use the high energy of busy writing times to try to keep words coming.

Here’s wishing everyone a productive Spring.
