Can you believe the summer is over and we are rolling into fall? August was an exciting month – LA SCBWI and WriteonCon. Plus, for the first time since May I managed to complete a picture book draft. Whew! Now the rest of our 12 x 12 in 2012 participants need to check in and let us know if you completed a picture book draft in August.
Many thanks again to our August featured author – poetic wonder Rebecca Kai Dotlich. If you missed her phenomenal August 1 post about using poetic devices when writing picture books, it is a must read! If you left a comment on that post, you are automatically entered to win a FREE critique from Rebecca, regardless of whether you completed a PB draft this month. Don’t lose your chance to win – make sure you comment on that post!!
Also, we can all go one step further to support Rebecca by purchasing a copy of her brand new book (mentioned in her post) What Can a Crane Pick Up, due from Knopf Books for Young Readers on September 11. I’ve already pre-ordered my copy!
If you did complete a draft in August, let us know in the comments and that will get you another entry. YOU MUST LEAVE YOUR NAME (FIRST AND LAST) IN YOUR COMMENT IF YOU WANT IT TO BE COUNTED AS AN ENTRY. You have until midnight EST September 1st to leave a comment on this post and/or the August 1st post to be eligible for the drawing.Categories: 12 x 12 Featured Author, 12 x 12 in 2012, Authors, Giveaway, Goals, Picture Books, Poetry, Publishing, Rhyming, SCBWI, Works in Progress, Writing · Tags: 12 x 12 in 2012, 12 x 12 Monthly Check-In, Giveaway, Goals, Julie Hedlund, Picture Books, Poetry, Rebecca Kai Dotlich, Rhyming, SCBWI, What Can a Crane Pick Up?, Works in Progress, WriteOnCon, Writer, Writing
