I’ve invited a group of top-notch writers to share their writing tips with you this summer. Look for a new bit of learned experience each Tuesday.
Vaunda Micheaux Nelson: Remain open to the possibility of changing your approach to a project. Your picture book might work better as a novel (Mayfield Crossing). Your YA biography might be better told as a documentary novel (No Crystal Stair) or even a picture book (The Book Itch). Don’t be afraid to start over, to invent your own format … to break the rules.
Please visit Vaunda Micheaux Nelson’s website, so you can enjoy her books, which range from young adult nonfiction to early chapter books, from novels to picture books. Always a pleasure to dig in to Vaunda’s carefully researched, lively books.
