"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

Me...and Picture Books

Most of you know I changed my writing focus at the beginning of this year - to writing (actually more learning how to write) children's picture books. I am, and have been, participating in several opportunities to learn and develop my skill in this area this year, from classes to Facebook groups to organizations and more.

I've got a post about my journey to where I am now featured at one of them - Julie Hedlund's 12  x 12 - which challenges folks to write 12 picture book drafts in 2014. Hope you'll stop by and find out a bit about what got me here!

 
My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. Psalm 45:1
