Let's Paint! by Gabriel Alborozo (Allen & Unwin, Australia, 2013) offers the same kind of encouragement to artists that I want to offer to my writers -- trust your ideas, no matter what shape they come in, find your own style, and above all HAVE FUN!
My Pen by Christopher Myers (Disney Hyperion, 2015) reminds us
"There are a million pens in the world
and each one has a million worlds inside it.
So if you have a pen, see what you can do--
let those worlds inside your pen out!"
"Who knows what will happen next? Still, I'm sure there will be many more words and stories to come for this king and queen."These are my hopes for my writers: that they will have fun, discover new worlds, and come to know that the possibilities are endless for their writing!
