Blockbuster Plots

The seasons are changing here in northwest Indiana. Everywhere I look, signs of Autumn appear. The summer flowers are loosing their luster. My Tulip tree is dropping leaves. The pumpkins out in the garden are ready to be picked.

With the changing season is a renewed sense of trying to get my novel completely revised and off to find the right publisher. I keep hearing how MG is hot right now, especially MG novels geared toward boys. Which is a real motivator to put the finishing touches on my story. I finally started watching a highly recommended dvd, BlockBuster Plots, which I think will help take my novel from where it is to where it needs to be.

So far, the dvd is educational and points are clearly explained. Best of all, unlike at a regular conference, when the speaker starts going to fast, I can just push pause or rewind and hear what she has to say over and over again!

Happy writing to all. Thanks for stopping by. And enjoy the cooler weather!
