New Writing Opportunity

I just wanted to share my latest writing opportunity. I am now the Southeastern Illinois Early Childhood Education Examiner for Examiner.com. I did a lot of research on this writing opportunity and considering they needed a writer for an area of my interest, I applied. I was contacted that my application and writing samples were accepted and they offered me the writing opportunity. I just started today and only have one article up on my site. But, I wanted to share it with everyone. Please check it out and leave me comments. And keep checking back because I will be adding to it weekly. Even if you are not in Illinois, if you are interested in early childhood education or know of someone that does, it will be interesting to you no matter where you live.

Can't wait to hear what you think!

What's on for 2010?

It is the new year, 2010. I've been thinking about my writing and trying to make a list of everything I want to accomplish this year. For some reason, if I write it down and actually see it in writing, I am more likely to get it done. Some of the things on my list are:
1. Get new author packs ready for bigger educational publishers.
It's been 1 yr since I sent a pack to them and haven't heard anything. I've got some new published credits, so what a better time to reintroduce them to me?
2. Submit to a magazine each month.
When I first started, I submitted many articles/stories to magazines but have since stopped. I am gong to revise some of my old stories and find new homes for them.
3. Work on a proposal for a children's publisher.
This is just some of my list, but it's where I am starting. How about you? What's on your "to do" list for 2010?
Happy Writing!
