On the Writer's Digest website, a regular contributor is Chuck Sambuchino. His column often focuses on information about agents and interviews with them. But he also has"7 Things I've Learned So Far" in which writers tell some of the stand-out lessons they've learned about the craft and the business of writing. Though this doesn't focus on picture books in particular (an example that does is here from writer Audrey Vernick) these are universal to all of us who tell stories and make books. There are some great lessons learned from a wide variety of writers! Perhaps you'll recognize lessons you've learned, too?
