Looking for a dose of inspiration? I'm finding it over at Lisa Schroeder's blog. There she has YA author posts where they share their experience with dreaming big. And don't skip it if you think it's only geared to writers. It speaks to everyone who has that niggling dream in their heart. Love it.
Speaking of Lisa, many congrats to her on the release of her newest book, Chasing Brooklyn. I began following Lisa's blog when she was writing for the picturebook market. It has been so inspiring to watch how she has grown and reinvented herself. Go Lisa!
This is such a fun time of year because everyone is so inspired about pursuing their dreams with gusto! It's infectious. With that in mind, I thought I'd post a recommendation if there is anyone visiting that is interested in freelance illustration.
Holly DeWolf's, Breaking Into Freelance Illustration is chock full of valuable info and encouragement. Definitely a book to add to your arsenal. Holly did a fabulous job of covering all the bases and it was so fun to see interviews in there with fellow illustrator buddies Kathy Weller, Jannie Ho, Holli Conger and Susan Mitchell. I also had the privilege of being one of the contributors which was a lot of fun- thanks Holly!
Anyway, get this book, you won't be disappointed. =o)
