Frog in Musketeer ClothingThe Wisconsin chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers (SCBWI) and Illustrators put on a fantastic conference this past weekend. (If you haven’t herd of them and you’re an illustrator or author of children’s books, take 5 minutes and give yourself a professional gift!) SCBWI Regions

I’ve come away with some wonderful learning. Much of it I’ll have to digest and unpack over the next few months, but here’s one very important tip from Tim McCanna.

Practice Your Craft!

Set aside time every day. If you’re an author, write every day. If you’re an illustrator, draw every day. Put time into story creation regularly. Check out resources like the 12×12 Challenge or Story Storm to find a community of support for this important creative brainstorming.

That’s all for today! Go, practice your craft!
