It's REAL snow this time. Not "snow" which is what we usually get.
And because the Snow-pocalypse was predicted early last week, I went ahead and drafted my first post as a solo-blogger. Here 'tis--
WELCOME TO PICTURE THIS!
Well, hello!! Thank you so much for following me over here. I must admit that I feel a little bit like I'm wandering into a party all alone ...
But, it'll be okay. Katie promises to visit me, and you can find her blog here. Please go and see her. I'll wait ...
Soooo ... let me get you up to date. Katie and I decided to branch off from our PlotThis blog and venture out on our own. Since I'm immersed in the world of picture books and middle grade, and she is rockin' the young adult and adult non-fiction world (yep--she's working on a memoir), we decided that it made sense to split off and start new blogs--each having a different focus.
Since last fall, I have finished up revisions on my picture book and have been given the go-ahead by my wonderful editor and art directors at Viking to start on final illustrations--that's 30 little paintings that I've got to whip out in the next few months!! Plus, I've been working on my middle grade novel, sketching new characters and brainstorming new picture book ideas.
Over the next few months, I'll be blogging about things like:
*favorite picture books and middle grade novels
*illustrating for children
*revising, plotting and creating characters
*chasing cats, juggling creativity with responsibility,
carpool lines, and general Southern randomness
I hope you'll come back. Here's to 2011!!!!!
Now I'm off to find our sleds.
