Do you write YA, middle grade, chapter books or picture books? Check out KidLit Summer School, a free online program for writers. If you'd like a peek into my plotting process, check out my summer school guest post to see my messy notebook and my much neater plot chart.
This quote by Ira Glass is one of my favorites because it applies to many situations: definitely our creative lives, but also learning other new things. The gap is the difference between reading an awe-inspiring book and then reading your own crappy first draft. It's also the difference between learning a new kata in the martial arts, then watching someone stellar perform the same moves. Do you have gaps that you're mindful of?
A special thank you to Charlotte, the Swedish gardener and biologist behind "My Green Nook," for nominating my blog for the Versatile Blogger Award. I'm honored! You can check out Charlotte's blog here.
