Have you ever read Jigsaw Jones chapter books? Or maybe the Cam Jansen series?
I read my first Jigsaw Jones mystery a few years ago. I laughed out loud in every chapter!
Not too long after that, I started writing my own early chapter book. So much fun!
I finished the book, had it critiqued (several times) and did some revisions (and I’m still doing a bit here and there). For a brief moment in time today, I intended to post the first two chapters here, but decided against it. I know, I know…the Wimpy Kids books started out online. But I think Jeff Kinney’s success story is NOT the norm. (I have to admit that I really do like the series, though!)
What are YOU working on right now? Where is your focus? Are you sharing your work with a critique group? Do you have trusted writing partners who will speak truth to you about your work? Are you able to speak truthfully to them about theirs?
Or do you work alone until your work goes to the editor?
