Citrus Summer

The beautiful weather we have been experiencing the last few days has been totally inspiring to me. I'm spending as much time outdoors as possible, and purchasing cute summer essentials along the way.

These are some of my favorites, all in the boldest of citrusy hues.

6. Essie "Bright Tights" Polish, $8
7. Canvas Tote, $10

  10. Thanks for your message. Have you read lots of picture books? It's an excellent way to get a really good feel for what works. And it's worth checking out the recent ones (so you could go into a bookshop and read through lots of them -very carefully of course!). And if you buy some that you think are great, or get some really good ones out of the library, try typing them out and looking at them as manuscripts so you can see where the page turns happen and the shape of the story. That can really help give you a feel for it. I would really recommend joining SCBWI and there are all sorts of events where you can learn from other authors and editors and agents. We've got critique groups which can be extremely valuable in helping you make your story the very best it can be. My latest post is all about feedback on your writing, which might help (click on my name on the right hand side of the blog and it'll come up). And don't worry about your story not coming out perfect first time round: it often takes lots and lots of editing to get it right.
