Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators
-Part of growing up is aligning desire with actions...kids often say and do things that are the opposite of what they want (I'm pretty sure I still do this on a relatively regular basis!)
-Think: Does this FEED me or does it COST me?
-Instead of "what does my character want": "what does my character care about?"
-Write to your strengths, revise to your weakness.
-What would you do if you knew that failure was impossible?
