With summertime here at last, this is what’s going on behind the scenes here in the studio. I’ve just added a section for original artwork to my website so if you’re looking for some original art for yourself or as a gift, check it out. I’ll be uploading more in the coming weeks.
The main thing that has been going on is I’m working on a brand new children’s book
How I write children’s books
In case you’re thinking of writing a children’s book yourself, the first stage of my process is I spend a lot of time thinking about the story, it’s like an incubation period and this could take weeks or months. Then it’s suddenly time to sit down with a notebook and jot down a really rough idea of the book … a beginning, a middle and an end. This is a very rough outline, then I develop it a bit more. I’ve reached this stage now so will pop in a little paragraph next month to keep you updated on my progress.
