Also, I'm not an expert in the kidlit world. This is written from the perspective of a kidlit illustrator/writer who is freshly minted.
That being said, I hope to entertain, inform and otherwise engage my readers. If anything written here is worthy of comment, please feel free to drop me a note.
This is a recurring theme in my life. As a mom of feisty twins, I hear "no" quite often. My brain is overly occupied with how to "get people on board" any given situation. So, when it comes to my own resistance I find I'm just as petulant as a 9 year old (or maybe a two year old)! No, I don't want to do a blog! I don't care if everyone else is doing it!
And here I am, joining the fray. And why? Because I've convinced my 9 year old self that it's a way to become connected, become noticed (for better or worse), to participate and to show my level of commitment to this undertaking called "Kidlit".
As a compromise to my whiny self, this will be a once-a-week blog in the hopes that "less is more" and I don't run screaming from my happy kidlitcafe!
