As the author and/or illustrator of 10 published picture books, life would seem to be going swimmingly for Julia Woolf. But as she reveals in her honest blog post for Picture Book Den, success doesn't always mitigate the doubts and fears of a creative life.

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.
