It's been too long since I posted here.
I've been working very hard at digging deeper into my picture book manuscripts making them shorter, more layered and character driven and [I think] better.
My phrase this week for that is - Be the character!
the food word for today is fondue. . .
later today my husband and are are going to The Melting Pot
to enjoy a three course fondue meal = cheese, wine/broth & lastly chocolate fondue.

"The effort involved in writing a short story is as intense as
beginning a novel, where everything must be defined in the first
paragraph: structure, tone, style, rhythm, length and sometimes even
the personality of a character." --Gabriel Garcia Marquez
