What does PiBoIdMo and turkey and Christmas Wish lists and witches and frogs have to do with one another? Well, they're all mentioned in my blog post which came out today (not on Black Friday--I got a little mixed up.) Here's a sneak peek at the post:
I talk about something all picture book writers should have at the top of their Christmas list. You don't want to miss it! Go Shopping!

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!
