Update: I DID IT!!! 52 FIRST DRAFTS IN 52 WEEKS!!! It was an amazing year full of self discovery, and improvement of my craft. The wonderful people over at SCBWI also noticed, and asked me to contribute a guest blog post on the official SCBWI website. Please give it a read.
Welcome to the 52 First Drafts project. I am going to attempt to write one picture book every week for a year. Just the first drafts. Where will I get the ideas? Where will I find the energy? Will I make it to the end? Only time will tell.
I hear over and over again, the only way to become a better writer is to write. I want to write picture books. I want them to be good. I want to have my work published.
How often in life are we afforded the luxury of time? I happen to have some free time this year. I am determined not to waste it. On these pages I will chronicle my journey to become a better writer and hopefully a published writer (but mostly the better part).
My struggles, my victories, my walls, my growth, my observations, my discoveries.
Go to my blog to follow along. 52 first drafts, here we go.
