#23 Write and Illustrate a Children’s Book

#23 from my 35 things to do when I’m 35

I’ve had an idea in my head for a while bouncing around for a kids book.   About the passage of time and how hard it is for kids to make sense of  complex concepts – before, now, after…yesterday, today, tomorrow.  I have finally put it all together in a proposal letter and sent it out to about 10 literary agents specializing in children’s books.   I did learn that I am NOT an illustrator however, so made a couple attempts and gladly accepted that this is not my calling.

My kids now have a mock-up copy (with bad illustrations) that we read and perhaps there will be some interest out there in the world.  Worth a shot, right?
