NESCBWI Blog List
October 18, 2011
I won’t call myself a blog slacker; I deliberately went back into my soundproof booth this summer in order to push forward on a new project. How’s that going? Well, it’s a new world for me, trying something longer form, working by way of plot outlining techniques–using an outline, period. Add to that freelance commitments, a busy family life … you other writers know what I’m talking about. It’s easy to beat ourselves up for not making enough progress, but actually, staying disciplined, writing through those wobbly scenes, remembering that we don’t completely stink at writing–or working anyway even if we’re feeling that way–is all a kind of progress. And I like this piece I’ m working on. So, it’s going. Just some things, like blogging, taking a backseat lately.
But speaking of blogs …
Stopping in today to mention that there is a now a blog directory of New England kidlit writers and illustrator over at the NESCBWI website. You can find it here. Thank you, Melissa Stewart over at Celebrate Science for organizing this great resource; Anindita Basu Sempere for your help on this, too; and Greg Fishbone for all of your work on the site. We are lucky to have many awesomely talented members of the creative community in this region. This new web resource points the way to all sorts of great conversations happening!
Hope all is well with you this fall!
