Day three went off without a hitch. I wrote a very promising first draft. It is rough, but I will work on this one after I work on the story about my Christopher. It has to do with a little boy named Humphrey. That name just came to me and I'm sticking with it. :-)
If you've ever been a child you can write a children's book. And I KNOW most of you reading this have been through childhood. ;-)
I believe that we all still have the little child living inside of us. So I call on that kid when I am writing a picture book. (Hubby says I sometimes act like a child. This is not the same meaning as calling on my inner child when I write.) Humph to hubby! *wink*
For writers to write they must also read. I read anything and everything. Right now I am reading a devotional called, He said She said. Yep, I read 'big people' books too.
A picture book I am about to start is Big Rabbit's Bad Mood. It is a a wonderful story about being in a BAD mood. Children everywhere can relate. (My inner child can connect.) It was written by Ramona Badescu. So let's go and create. :-)
