Yesterday, I sorted all my projects into neat stacks on the floor of my office. I have a poetry stack, a stack of fun art projects, a stack for writing workshops that I'll be doing this winter, a stack for activities to share at book signings and talks, a stack of books to read, and a stack of research books, notebooks, and manuscript pages for my novel in progress.
This morning I wrote poetry, and now it's back to the book. My friend and fellow author/poet from the retreat, Claudia Mills, told me this, and I think it's good advice for all you writers out there: "Keep writing it (your book) until it is true."
If you're writing books for younger readers, look for Claudia's.
