Another mash-up of sketches to start out the week. Last week was mostly licensing work so nothing I can share there (yet!). I'm taking the advice of Bruce Colville (see my post about the NESCBWI conference) and reading 100 children's books, then picking my top 10 and writing them over by hand. I realize I have about 5 dummies in various stages (none of them complete, most of them just sparks of ideas and setups) and this exercise should help me to advance them. I'll make another trip to our town library today to load up on new titles.
