ARRGH!

I finished a draft of a new picture book at the end of 2011, and I've embarked on revisions in the new year.

Let me say this about that: It's tricky.

Which reminds me that I will be on faculty at the NESCBWI Conference this April, with a presentation entitled "It's Tricky to Rock a Rhyme: Real Tips You Can Use". And yes, I totally swiped those first six words from Run DMC.



(Check out how young Penn and Teller were there!)

Sounds like a good year end and a promising start to the new year on the writing front. Go Kelly! (And I'm looking forward to hearing more about it.)

Good swiping, Kelly.

Danke. Meanwhile, even having never watched Dora, I'm pretty sure you're supposed to say "Swiper, no swiping!"

Hi Kelly! (missed ya!) I am so, so curious about the writing process for picture books. I have this horrifyingly oversimplified idea of it in my mind (which I know is just wrong) and I would love to learn more about the process. Maybe you'd consider doing a post or two about it at some point in the future?

I would be happy to do that - will give it some thought as to how best to proceed. You can find lots of interesting stuff over at Tara Lazar's blog.
