A couple of houses near me continue to bring cheer to the local neighbourhood in these trying times. Yes, you're seeing right - they've still got their Christmas lights on in March!

Once again, WriteOnCon are holding their online kidlit writing conference. There are a mix of blog posts, Q&A sessions, workshops, discussions and feedback sessions all geared towards kidlit writers (anyone can attend, though, as a lot of advice will be universal). There’s still time to register, and there are different tiers of attendance, depending on your requirements.
The forums are up and running from today, and you can polish your Twitter pitches, queries and the first 500 words of your manuscript with the aid of fellow writers. There’s even a ‘Supers’ district where agents, editors and professional writers might drop by to give feedback.
Hope to 'see' you there!

Here are my stats:
Borrowed from library: 1 physical book and 25 e-books.
My books: 16 physical books and 42 e-books.
Beta reads: 1 book.
Total: 17 physical books, 67 e-books and 1 beta read = 85 books. Not bad, eh?
How about you? How many books did you read in 2020?

Whilst out and about on my daily walks recently, I've been heartened to see poppies on display in windows, pumpkins on garden walls, and the rich colours of Autumn leaves.

The trees and hedgerow look lovely in the background, just turning colour now that autumn's arrived.
