I've spent the past little while working on page proofs and copyedits, but I dropped two packages off at the UPS store this morning--WHEE!!! I am going to celebrate by not reading anything with a pen or pencil in hand! Double WHEE!!!

I would share a tidbit about my fascinating (ha!) life, but lately I've been so boring that my dreams? In them, I sit reading over pages with pen/pencil in hand. (!)

So let's just move on to the links....

Diana Peterfreund on what to do when you hit a writing wall

Three must-read posts about how books end up in bookstores, how a bookstore decides how many copies of a title to carry, and self-promotion

Editorial Anonymous on the ins and outs of option clauses and query letters

And finally, a bit of Bloom is the quote of the month over at The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books. (pardon me, but YAY!!! And a big thank you to them as well.)
