Time again for the weekly Sunday check-in at ROW80.
This past week I have actually made some headway with my new course and with a new challenge.
I started the “Picture Book Magic” writing course on May 1 and the first lesson was to choose a character and answer a slew of questions. I usually try to get to know the characters I write about, but this list was quite intensive. I have my character – a little girl named Hazel and am trying to work on the problems she will face (lesson 2). Still have more work on this one.
NaPiBoWriWee – national Picture Book Writing Week runs from May 1 -7 and I have joined in. I felt that even though I might now fully write a picture book each day, I would generate ideas and brainstorm each day on one of my ideas. In the past 4 days though, I have written two pix book scripts. It must be true – the more you write, the more you do write.
I have also started my research for my historical MG novel – Jacob’s Journey. I have checked out books from the library and looked online. I hope to go to the University of Waterloo in the next 2 weeks to do more in depth research.
I worked on another chapter of my newest romance novel.
I posted a poem for “30 Words Thursday”.
I have now finished my tutoring job, so I will have more time for writing, in longer blocks.
In the next few days I will continue with my course and picture book writing; work on my research and my romance novel.
