Writing a Picture Book

by Hannah Holt »


Whew! Post #1. I’ll begin with a few quick rules of thumb I try to follow when making picture books.

  1. Write about things children care about/can understand
  2. Keep it short (under 500 words)
  3. Keep the story moving
  4. Choose the right words
  5. When writer’s block strikes… eat chocolate.

Hope you enjoy the new site!
