Week in Short

*drags self to computer*

*checks calender*

Crap, it's Saturday. Yes, I'm only two days into my Spring Break and I already don't know what day it is. I'm also on a large amount of sugar, not a lot of sleep, and freezing.

GAH. As soon as I finish writing this, I'm curling up in a chair with an electric blanket and playing video games.

So before we start, I'd like to share this link. ZOMG it's about the food at the Harry Potter theme park. It is now my mission in life to go there and find out what butterbeer and pumpkin juice taste like.

This week's Must Read comes from Querytracker where they talked about different methods of backing up your work.

Contests:
GLA is holding a "Dear Lucky Agent" Contest for middle grade and young adult with agent Regina Brooks!

Blood-Red Pencil
discussed non-reaction in characters and bending grammar rules.

GLA
interviewed Marlene Stringer of Stringer Literary Agency.

Nathan Bransford
talked about pitches.

YA Highway
interviewed Laura Resau.

***
Jump -- is doing excellent. I finished the timeline a couple days ago and am currently working on whipping the query into shape and getting ready to start some larger character and plot changes. Then it'll be one last grammar readthrough and if the query and synopsis are ready, I'll be querying again. :D

Everything else has been on hold while I focus all my energy on homework and Jump. I'm hoping to take Destiny, Three Days, and KITSAN out of the trunk again soon. I've also been working on a little side project called Fire but I had to turn in everything I had as a creative writing assignment so that's on hold until I go back to school. :(

Have an awesome Easter everyone!
