Hey!  I just wanted to shout out that a short blog post I wrote about training one’s ear to the music found in poems is up at the RhyPicBoMo site at:  http://angiekarcher.wordpress.com/  .   (That’s:  Rhyming Picture Book Month site.) Scroll down a little below the information about SCBWI.

 

Enjoy!

(And write a poem today to celebrate National Poetry Month!)

Mini-Lesson: Cornering Your Characters

 

Join me at Kate Messner’s site:  Teachers Write for a lesson on getting your characters to the point that they must make the final fateful decision that will move your story forward to its climax.

Enjoy!
