Ho! Ho! Ho!
How’s your weekend so far?
Mine has been a lot of fun.
You might not know it, but I am personal friends with Santa Claus.
Yep, jolly old St Nick, himself.
And last night, Santa was throwing the first ball for the game here in Port St. Lucie. Here he is getting ready:
After Santa pitched the first ball last night, he joined us in the bleachers to watch the game.
Or rather, he tried to watch the game.
Little children’s eyes would light up when they passed us and spied him.
They wanted to talk to him, to touch him, or to at least stand and look at him.
Parents kept coming up and asking if their child could sit on his lap so they could take a photo.
And, being the friendly, child-loving person that he is, Santa was happy to oblige.
All this got me to thinking about how much this is like being a children’s book author when you visit a school or a bookstore.
Children’s faces light up when they see your book and when they find out that you wrote it.
They want to talk to you, take a picture with you, and get your autograph.
I’ve signed everything from backpacks to balloons during school visits and I’ve always had a lot of fun.
But I haven’t written a new children’s book under my own name in a while (I’ve been very busy ghostwriting children’s books for clients), which is why I’ve decided to write my own new middle grade novel next month.
Care to join me and write your own middle grade novel in August?
I promise you we’ll have a lot of fun.
And you won’t get stuck in the middle of your story. If you do, I’ll show you what to do to get back on track and finish your book in just four short weeks.
Today is the final day to register for my Write a Middle Grade Novel in One Month Mentoring Program, which takes place next month.
Now, I can’t promise that you’ll be as popular as Santa when you finish your book and get it published.
But I can promise you’ll be really happy in September when you can tell everyone that you wrote a middle grade novel this summer.
Are you in?
Then register for my Write a Middle Grade Novel in One Month Mentoring Program now before registration closes tomorrow.
Also, be sure to order Nancy’s audios and handouts, which we’ll be using as our course materials for the mentoring program.
Here’s Nancy course:
All the best,
The Working Writer’s Coach
P.S. We’ll continue my 7-Day Morning Makeover Challenge here on Monday.
