Thank you all for the welcome. It is most kind. I am in the process of reading all of your blogs and subscribing to them as well. It is slow going. There is never enough time in the day to do everything. There is so much information out there!
I am having a hard time discerning what area I am most interested in writing for. I do not have any drawing skills whatsoever. I have ideas for what I think are picture books, but I don't know what age group to classify them in. I also have ideas of what the pictures should look like in the books, but where do you go for an illustrator? Do you just write the story by words alone? I think I am going to have to do more research before I do any more writing. I feel like a big fat FAIL!
All this information I am reading has really either confused me or just made me feel inadequate again. I really do not want that feeling any more, but it seems to creep up all the time. I know nothing in life is ever easy. And if I want it, I must work hard for it. But why do these feelings always seem to creep up and get me down? They just need to go away! I keep telling myself it's a slow learning process. I guess we all go through this from time to time. I just need to get over it.
Currently, I am working on an idea and trying to learn how to expound upon it into some type of children's book. I will undoubtedly need to go to the library and start reading books on "how to write for children(or picture books)" something similar. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
