I will be posting about what helps me brainstorm through a picture book to make it more creative and visual. This post will arrive on November 25th--yes, black Friday! But if you're too stuffed to go out on Friday, pop on over to Tara Lazar's blog and check it out: PiBoIdMo. Also, you should check out all the guest posts this month. It's a treasure trove of information about writing picture books!
One thing that has been spectacular for me about being a picture book author is that I get to share what I do with children. They think I'm a rock star. They really do! And that kind of love really helps you want to write more the next day, even when you get a boat load of rejections (which I still get--even from my own publishers!!!) I'll be posting one of those school visits soon. All of the kindergarten teachers dressed like Peepers! In fact, there were a ton of Peepers wandering around the school. So cute!
