Children’s drawings

I have recently been trying to anthromorphise my drawings. I find it difficult.  Maybe I am trying too hard. I watch my 8 year old son who seems to manage it with such ease (but then I think he practises much more than I do and maybe that’s the moral of this story).

Joseph – age 8

I just love the expression on the shark’s face, the little piggy looks stunned and the crocodile has no idea what’s behind her!

Participating

Write a 'To do..' list to help you get started and keep on track!

Once the last of my Christmas visitors have left I will be able to get down and back into my writing and drawing. Polishing, revising and rewriting manuscripts. Some I have recently received back from professional editors and manuscript assessors, and now have lots to read and think about.

Once I feel my many stories are up to scratch they will be submitted to a variety of competitions, publishing houses and critique groups.

Here are some things you might like to participate in:

Manuscript Monday with Pan Macmillan Australia

January Contest with QueryTracker.net blog

Children’s & Young Adult Writers and Illustrator’s Contest with CYA Conference

Frustrated Writers 2012 with the The Children’s Book Council of Australia

Don’t forget to join some groups yourself!
