I am really looking forward to my fortieth birthday next January 28, 2021.

I will be finishing up my course in writing for children. I love the successes I am having. My writing instructor at The Institute of Children’s Literature gave me great feedback on a harder assignment I revised and it felt good. I am looking forward to finishing my course with ICL by January 2021. I look forward to receiving my certificate in writing for children and teenagers. I hope I can get my children’s books published including a middle grade or YA novel idea I have. We can submit the first three chapters of a book length work and I am going to choose to revise one of my earlier lessons. I am going to be waiting until the library in my area reopens and I will be using the rest of this year making writing appointments and typing up my last three assignments to complete my course. I have an extension through the month of January 2021. I will be sitting in the library a few times a week once the library reopens. I feel better when I work on my course in the library. I hope and I pray that I can get some help and support for my book from my instructor. I also entered a poem in the Institute for Writers poetry contest that I think will be getting back to me sometime in August.
