It's Time For the 12 x 12 End Of The Year P-a-r-t-y

*Party hardy* *happy dance* 



I completed the 12 x 12 challenge. I have written  12 picture book manuscripts this year, although some are nonsensical malarky, I tell ya. But they all have some promise, providing I can sprinkle the magic dust on 'em.  :-) And I know I can. :-)



This is the end of the year blowout party. 

Boom chuca, boom chuca, chuca, boom chuca, boom chuca, chuca! (Like that? Well I am an accomplished rapper now.)

When I first signed up, I wondered if I had what it takes. You know. THE stuff. THE STUFF it takes to write one every month. Discipline=YIKES! But I met up with some cool peeps and they said I had THE STUFF to write a new draft every month. *whew*  

The first story I wrote last January has already been revised and is my favorite one. It is almost ready to face the world.  So 12 x 12 has been very good to me. I think of it as my writerly mama. So I love you 12 x 12 and a supercalafragalisticexpealadocious hug for the mommy of all 12 x 12'ers, Julie Hedlund.  I love you Mommy. *wink*
