Wednesday Writing Update

Hello Lovely Readers!

Welcome to my Wednesday writing update.  This is where I let you know what I’ve been working on this week in my writing life.  Summer is a time where I shift my focus to more picture book writing as I do not have to teach for a couple of months.

Below are my latest book dummies.  I just fold 8 pages of 8 1/2 by 11 paper in half and staple them together.  Then I print off my manuscript and cut and paste based on 12-14 spreads to make a 32 page picture book.

These are the two I worked on this week.  My next step is to read them aloud and record them with my phone.  Then I play back the stories and listen for any flaws.

This week I’m also working on revising an older manuscript I hadn’t touched in several months.  That story will also need to be made into a dummy fairly soon.

I am also reading a lot of comparative picture books as mentor texts.

What writing projects have you been working on this week?
