I'm headed to a children's writers workshop in just a couple of days, and hope to come back with lots of ideas and inspiration (and if I'm incredibly lucky, some interest from a publisher or two, though that's not my main goal for the workshop). A bit of a spanner in my October planning is a job I applied for--science communication, so right up my alley, and in an organisation my husband is a researcher in (so I've been complaining about their pathetic communication efforts for years
). Anyway, to my great surprise I was called in for an interview. Yikes! After working for myself for a dozen years, the idea of a job interview (and a job) is sort of freaking me out. But, new job or not, I'll be putting the final editing polishes on The Ipswich Witch
in preparation for publishing in November, and editing The Dragon Slayer's Daughter
. If I'm being really good, I'll finish writing the first draft of the second Anti-Mage book...but instead I'll probably start writing the next Dragon Slayer book because I'm far more enthusiastic about those books. There are also two short story contests I'm hoping to enter. Whew! Enough for October!
