"BACK TO ILLUSTRATIONS"
I enjoyed my time off work and mixed researching with relaxing. Now it's time to return to drawing the illustrations!
"PAGES AND PAGES"
Looking at the layout of pages, I realized that some two page spreads would not work out how I planned. I'm working on how to accomplish each spread in the books!
I've decided what I want my book covers to look like, and also how the inside of the covers will look. Very exciting!
"TAKING IT EASY"
I'm feeling under the weather, but I'm still researching. I'm just taking it a little easy today.
"THE LIBRARY CARD"
I am excited to have a new library card for the area where I live, which gives me access to a world of literature. It's a key to knowledge!
An important part of being an author and illustrator is reading lots of books. I have checked out a nice variety of books to research and enjoy!
"BACK TO RUBY BE"
Our honeymoon is over, but my personal vacation starts today! I plan to focus some of the time on the Ruby Be books!
Today, I read about copyright and wrote what I'd like for that page! It's all coming together!
The end of this week, I'm taking a break from the books to focus on my fashionably late Valentine's weekend honeymoon! Next week, I plan to visit the libraries and study more children's books! I love children's stories, but I never looked at the technical side of them. Eye opening!
"STUDYING CHILDREN'S BOOKS"
I had to run the weekly errands, but I did have a chance to study children's books at the laundromat! I glimpsed scholastic books, and even a book featured on Reading Rainbow. I have gained a good idea for the copyright page!
