Writers Rumpus Blogiversary

cupcake with candle What is Writers Rumpus? Marianne Knowles, who runs the writers critique groups I belong to, started a blog for children’s book writers and illustrators that is chock full of great information in twice weekly (Tuesdays and Fridays)  by our crit group members  and guest posters. I’ve written a few of these articles myself. One, titled Why thirty-two pages?, apparently had the most hits in a day of any post on that site: 465. Maybe it was a quirk? who knows. Anyway, all of us are committed to sharing info that’s worth people’s time.

Marianne is entirely responsible for Writers Rumpus (and the footnotes), our fantastic forum for children’s book people. Yay Marianne!

    Joyce, “Why thirty-two pages” has had the most views ever: 2144 as of today. I thought about naming the most popular posts, but decided not to at the last minute.

      No worries. The stats you included were plenty. The whole WritersRumpus thing is a triumph for you and all of your flock. Thanks a million for all that you do!
