I did get my entry into the Highlights' Annual Fiction Contest, ("Don't Drop the Frijoles!") but I'm not doing 12 x12 this year. After submitting 50 pieces in 2012 and over 70 in 2013, I'm going to take it a bit easier this year.
I am so anxious to hear from Julie Ham about my story which has made it to the Charlesbridge acquisitions committee--Biscochito Man! But no word yet. Still haven't skyped with Myra Reisberg yet either, to talk about the two stories she was interested in representing. I feel like I'm on hold so far this snowy January, but hopefully good news will arrive soon.
