Thoughts and information on writing for children.

Writing Silly

With the upcoming activity book project and several needlework projects, I’ve given up trying to revise a novel I drafted in November. I’ll tackle that over the summer. Big, complicated projects, like novels, require longer writing periods and more undivided attention–for me, anyway. So I’ve turned my creative writing attention to short things.

Crafting Puzzles for Kids

I lead a dual life: needlework designer, children’s author. I sometimes think I should give one up in order to do a better job of the other. (Any self-employed person will tell you there’s more to do to run a business than one person can do. Two businesses? Who do I think I am, Wonder Woman?) But which would I give up? That would be like Sophie’s Choice. Thank goodness I’m not Sophie.
