On Saturday, Children’s Writers of the Hudson Valley hosted First Impressions: A First Page and Query Event. We had reached max capacity for critiques, but were able to accept a few listening registrations for those that still wanted to learn from the pages of others.
Logical Construction In Children’s Literature – Pub Speak Blog Tour
Over at Write4Kids, I talk about logical construction and why it can’t be ignored when writing for children. A sneak peek:
“Logical construction touches on almost every aspect involved in crafting good fiction. Many times, when a reader is pulled out of a manuscript, it’s because an action, thought or piece of dialogue they’ve just read doesn’t make sense within the context of the work. This is known as a logic problem, and can be easily fixed.”
Head on over to Write4Kids to see some common logic problems and fixes.
Also, Pub Speak had its first review posted at Trees and Ink!
