It’s officially back to school time in our house. For the kids, it means back to the classroom. For me, it means back to writing.
Yes, I did some writing this summer, keeping up with my work-for-hire science articles, writing a book proposal and several magazine queries, even completing a couple of magazine articles.
But now it’s time to put a few fresh picture book ideas down on paper and get my work in front of educational publishers.
What does back to school mean for you?

What school means to me (which just so happens to start on the 20th of August!!!) – Homework, friends, homework, new teacher, homework, new principal, homework new classroom. 😉 Good luck on your submissions and writing! 😀
Erik, good luck with your new school year! We have already experienced a little bit of homework ourselves. 🙂
Good luck with it all, Kristen. You so miss the kids being home but productivity goes up.
Yo go girl!
