April was a good month for writing and meeting deadlines. The A-Z was motivating and instructive, and it was fun learning about my theme and meeting new bloggers. The flipside is I did not meet the goals for submitting my novel. I'm fighting writer fatigue at the moment, but since my mother is visiting for two weeks anyway, I'm taking it easy and helping her with her memoirs. We spent the afternoon talking about my uncle's experience in a German prison camp during WWII. She's 90 years old but has vivid recall of all he told her. Here's hoping the memory genes were passed on to me!
During the A-Z, a friend shared some information I thought I would pass on to YA writers. Did you see this?
