Quote of the Day + #PB practice:
" illustrating happens in your mind not on the paper."
That certainly rings true! I can easily envision the entire thing in my mind.
Getting it down on paper....well...
...for me it's learn-as-you-go.
That's why I love SCBWI. (The Society of Children's book Writers and illustrators)
They offer so much support to struggling authors/illustrators.
