Perfect Picture Book Friday - Oops

Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday!

As you all know, I am shuffling off to Buffalo to the SCBWI conference.  And it's finally happened.  I have run out of time.

Does anyone here realize how long it takes to try to turn a perfectly good online course into a one day workshop?  Sheesh!  I had no idea!  And shockingly (because you all know how organized I am and how good I am at estimating time :)) I underestimated how much time I'd need.  I've been nose-to-the-grindstone for days, and when I realized at 11:45 PM that I'd forgotten it was Thursday and hadn't done a Perfect Picture Book I was too zombified to come up with a decent plan.

So here is my indecent plan :)

I am posting the list, packing up Princess Blue Kitty, and hitting the road!

Please wish me luck.  I'm not at all sure I can do this.  There's a reason writers are perfectly happy writing in the kitchen with their dogs where they don't have to be outgoing and brave!

Hopefully I will see you Monday with the last installment of Clarike Bowman-Jahn's book tour for Edmund Pickle Chin!

And even though today is technically the 100th Perfect Picture Book Friday, we will celebrate next week with our last PPBF post before the summer hiatus!

For the complete list of books with resources, please visit Perfect Picture Books.

PPBF bloggers please be sure to leave your post-specific link in the list below so we can all come visit you!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!!! :)

  7. Considering the amount of work you put into this blog, I'm surprised, dazzled and amazed that wee hiccups like this don't happen more often. You are an inspiration to all of us, my friend!

    Have fun in Buffalo! (Is it even possible to have fun in Buffalo? If so, have it!)
