Chocolate

Now that Jane and I are getting close to a finished draft. My mind has turned to … editors. I read an interesting article by Jan Fields today regarding the subject. Follow the link if you’d like to read more.   http://www.writingforchildren.com/g7452/rx/ws05/together.shtml

Here’s a great quote from Jan: “I would love to be able to simply write whatever flows out of my pen and know that readers will love it. I would love that because that would certainly make my job easier. Producing material that is the very best quality of which I am capable is hard. Doing it while balancing the twin jobs of entertaining and bringing value makes it harder. And doing it while keeping in mind the realities of marketing is enough to make a girl go straight for the chocolate.”
