New Look, New Plan


Those of you who frequent my blog (anybody?) will notice it looks different. I switched blog platforms on you! I’m going to miss the simpleness of the other website (and the beautiful template), but I’m preparing for bigger things and will eventually need more functionality than the other site offers. Who knows, maybe I’ll actually understand how to work this thing in a couple of years? (and not want to hurl my computer into the wall every time I try something new)

Also, I’m excited to tell you I’m integrating my love for photography a lot more into the blog. Still figuring out the details, but today, I’m announcing what will become a regular feature: Picture Writing Prompts! In an upcoming post, I will offer suggestions on how to get the most out of each photo prompt. In the mean time, let the photo above inspire your writing!

In writing-related news, I’m traveling down to L.A. this weekend for a conference hosted by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. The faculty and classes seem fantastic, and I’m really looking forward to making more writer friends. I’m even going out clothes shopping (not exactly my favorite) tonight in preparation! Wish me luck on this daunting quest. (the shopping, that is)

And for those of you who are new to my site: a warm welcome! I hope reading a few of my previous posts and the promise of future Picture Writing Prompts will entice you to return often.

Until next week…Write On!
