Picture Book Check List


It's Writing Wednesday. When we are writing a picture book story, it may be short, but that doesn't mean it's simple. There are lots of things to consider about the plot, character, language, etc. Isn't it nice when someone puts together a list of writing pointers to refer to? Things to consider as we start to dream up a story, or after, when we evaluate what we've written? Here's a nice reminder list from Dianne Ochiltree, on Kathleen Temean's blog. How about using it to critique our latest stories?

Andrea, this checklist is so helpful. I'm using it on the next-to-last (?) draft of a picture book manuscript. Thank you again for all the generous information you provide us on this blog.

Glad you like it--let us know when your book sells!

You might like to let your readers and also the ones who write know about David L Harrison's contest this month. Just sign his guestbook for a chance to win a book or a free picture book critique. www.davidlHarrison.com/guestbook.htm.

I will be announcing some interesting stuff with Dianne Ochiltree next week on my blog www.kathytemean.wordpress.com.

Keep up the good work on your blog. I'll have to do a post about you in the future. Kathy
