So, my friend, LDZ, who is a very creative person by nature, decided to try something new and wrote a picture book.
It's funny and the words pop and the characters are great and I think the imagery will be fun for an illustrator to work with.
Now, I'm not a picture book writer. But I like to read them. And so does LDZ.
I think reading a zillion picture books is the best way to prepare to write one. One of the girls in my writing group, Sara, made a goal to read 100 picture books and did it. She says it's made her a better writer.
We wouldn't be writers if we weren't readers. Reading makes us fall in love with books. It gives us ideas and makes us grow as writers and as people.
So, congratulations to LDZ for trying something new!
What new thing have you tried and what inspired you to do so?
