A Silver Lining at the Magic Teapot
Good morning or evening depending on where you are in the world. I say this every week – but where does the time fly? 0730 hours saw me frantically pulling on clothes, brushing my teeth, feeding the cats and endeavouring to eat a bowl of breakfast cereal; remembering we’re off to a party later this afternoon AND I still have a weekend blog post to write. And I confess I’ve not given it much thought.

"Do picture books even have plots?" My husband asked me this after I had finished outlining a picture book in an attempt to learn how to improve plots in my own stories. The author of the writing book wherein I found the activity seems to think they do. To complete her exercise, I had outlined Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault which I had bought at Nebrask'as Plum Creek Literacy Festival.… Continue
