Coming This Week!

Week of June 24, 2012—Reflections from SCBWI, Orlando
Quotes of the week:
To solve any problem, here are three questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, who could I ask?
—Jim Rohn

No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals.
—Brian Tracy

What have you been learning lately? I find that continuing to learn about picture books, writing craft, the publishing industry, and so on is essential to becoming a successful author. There are many opportunities to learn—a book study with fellow writers, writer smoozes in your area, regional SCBWI conferences, national SCBWI conferences, blogs, and more.

This week I’ll share some of the things I learned at our Florida SCBWI in Orlando earlier this month. Hopefully you’ll learn something from my notes and be inspired to attend training near you soon.

Monday—Editor Sylvie Frank
Tuesday—Art Director Laurent Linn
Wednesday—An Idea-gathering Graphic Organizer
Thursday—Another Idea-gathering Graphic Organizer
Friday—SCBWI, LA
