Although there are more picture books waiting for their chance to become part of the wooly moon catalogue, I’ve spent the last 6 months working on my first chapter book. At first, it seemed quite daunting to even think I could create something longer than the traditional 32-page picture book. But with the generous support of the Mustard Seed Bookstore in Bath, Maine, I’ve found a writing sanctuary where I show up three times a week and write, write, write.
This week I’ll be talking with my editor at Book Bridge Press and we will decide how to move forward with this project. What a delight it is to have characters tell you who they are and what they are doing – especially when it turns out they have a totally different idea than what you expected to write!
Here’s to being brave and trying something out of your comfort zone!!!
