I Like to Write Picture Books

I'm in a picture book writing class right now.
The class is taught by Rick Walton and he knows the ropes.

Tonight, we learned about submitting manuscripts and after class, he stopped me and told me that I needed to send off one of my manuscripts because it was ready to go. Then he told me the publisher to send it to... and the editor... that has published five or six Utah authors... that he knows.

How exciting is that?
I know that I'll get rejected, but I'm just excited a successful children's book author thinks that my manuscript would do well as a book!

We're getting Papa John's pizza and cheesesticks to celebrate.
We live large, I know.
