Congratulations!


Today I want to say a huge "congratulations!" to my wonderful friend, Tess Hilmo. Tess's debut MG novel,With a Name like Love, launched this week. I met Tess and some other amazing woman writers several years ago at a week-long Highlights Writer's Workshop, and they've been awesome friends and writerly support for me ever since. Be sure to stay tuned for my interview with Tess and review of With a Name like Love - coming soon!
In the meantime, if you don't know Tess, click here to say hello and tell her congrats!

And thanks so much to everyone who told me your thoughts on outlining in my previous post. It seems there are as many different ways to outline as there are writers. I found it fascinating to read everyone's different methods!

Congratulations to Tess. And, yes, I'd say outlining is as individual as dressing oneself!
