I am still digesting all Julie's comments - it takes a while for them to sink in and a little longer before they are absorbed across the semi-permeable membrane of my brain.
One thing I will bask in (for a moment) is a comment I've waited three years, many manuscripts and revisions to hear...
"In my opinion, you nailed it!"
This from my advisor Julie about a picture book story I've been working, and reworking...
I am thankful, amazed, and uplifted.

Packet 1: 1 critical essay, 4 picture book manuscripts, annotated bibliography (list of relivant books you have read and brief writer notes for each), online assignments, and a substantiated letter. *keep in mind packet requirements vary by advisor*
I managed to get everything done - not to the standard I would have liked - but done nonetheless.
There was a lot of "Sorry, I have to do my homework..." and sneaking off to my room. I think this is a good thing. For next packet I'm aiming to spread the work out over the 4 weeks rather than live in seclusion the last 2 weeks! Wish me luck.
