This quote made me chuckle. How many times have you found yourself stressing about a page? You start writing and you stop? You stare? You can’t make your brain stop thinking enough to start writing. That’s what this quote means to me. In any case, I do have a resource I go to when I’m stumped. One basic resource.
The August 4 question asks: “What is your favorite writing craft book? Think of a book that every time you read it you learn something or you are inspired to write or try the new technique. And why?“
Writing Irresistible Kidlit by Mary Kole. Hands-down. WOW! Mary rocks!
I’m a graphic designer and it’s one of the better purposeful, fun to stare at books.The presentation is beautiful. Especially for readers like me who need to break up words with scribble designs and fun text. It all fits.
What I loved? What’s not to love. I learned everything. From teaching the steps on how to craft a story line, analyze the genre for competition, teaching the balance in action and introspecting, and the character building exercises and examples are astounding! I can’t stop raving about this book. Are you into young adult? Middle Grade? If you haven’t read the book you’ve got to get it.
How about you? Writing Young Adult? What’s your best go-to resource?
