BLOG BREAK Themes and Transformation

Nick Cross presents his selection of must-read SCBWI-BI member blogs.

I love the story behind the story, and Frances Tosdevin's post for the Picture Book Perfect blog recounts how the right editorial note helped transform her latest picture book An Artist’s Eyes.

Claire Watts is another writer dealing with editorial feedback. What can you do when the changes you're being asked to make seem impossible?

A couple of months ago, I recommended a post by Natascha Biebow about using global theme days as marketing hooks for your book. And here she is taking her own advice by blogging on National Crayon Day to promote her picture book The Crayon Man.

Finally, here's the kind of good advice we all need once in a while. Juliet Clare Bell offers ten ways to kickstart your writing if you’re stuck.

No comments:

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
