Exploring the kid lit world from a teen lit writer's point of view.
Monday, April 13, 2009
So today has not been the most productive. I love revisions, but sometimes the darn things get the best of me. I look at the screen and get all frazzled at the possibilities. So then comes tomorrow where I will print out the manuscript parts in question and analyze them a little more. What is necessary for the story, extraneous. How and when should this information be presented? Balance wordiness with literary style. Focus, focus, focus. Then things start to feel the way they should. Look at where you want to be and take the steps necessary to get there. Like Bill Murray said. Baby steps. Just go already!
All I want to do is write and read...well most of the time. A member of SCBWI, I'm on the never ending but always exciting quest to learn more about the kidlit publishing world while refining my writing craft. Come join me for the discussion!
