Picture This! Is Back

Week of January 1, 2013—A Brand New Beginning
Quote of the week:
Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be
better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.
—William Faulkner

Friends, fellow writers, and followers of Picture This!—Welcome to 2013! And
welcome back to Picture This! The business of writing took over my schedule for a
few months as Cowboy Christmas was launched and promoted. While I continue
that aspect of my writing life, and the writing part of my writing life, and the
teaching part of my life, another one of my goals for 2013, is to return to blogging.

I plan is to post daily again this year. However, you’ll notice some changes in
Picture This! Each day’s entry will be shorter than in the past and will be more in
the form of a tip to picture book writers. On occasion, you’ll find an interview,
reports from conferences I’ve attended, or creative challenges. Most days,
however, you’ll find a tip that will help you as a writer, teach an aspect of writing craft, inspire you, provoke you, and/or tickle you.

2013 has the potential to be a spectacular year. But it will only be what we make it.
So let’s make 2013 the best writing year ever!

Tuesday, January 1—Advice from Maurice
Wednesday, January 2—Three Words
Thursday, January 3—One Word
Friday, January 4—Forget the Resolutions—Get S.M.A.R.T.
