Books, blogs and websites I continue to discover and rediscover. The weather has put a wet damper on using the computer. My small walk - in closet has become my tornado closet. I don't know when I can regain it as my clothes closet. Back to pen and paper and catching up on reading. Rediscovering some of my research, how-to write and illustrate books.
For a few weeks I will be focused on three books; Creating Character Emotions by Ann Hood and Writing Dialogue by Tom Chiarella they are useful for all genres (adults, teens or children). They are filled with more then emotions and dialogue. #3 is How to write and Illustrate Children's Books and Get Them Published by Consultant Editors: Treld Pelkey Bicknell and Felictity Trotman, it was published 1988. All three books have much more than their titles reveal.

I continue to be up to my ears in writing projects. Humming birds are coming and Dragon Flies and birds are coming and going. Redbud trees and dogwood trees are filling my woodland garden with colors of hope. Hope you all are safe and being published - write on.
