Need some writing tips?

Sometimes writers need inspiration. Are you having trouble coming up with ideas for your next story?

"Miss Llewellyn-Jones Goes to Town"Yesterday I found the writing tips page on Elaine Forrestal’s website. It has a section dedicated to writing tips—like how to get ideas, finding the right voice for your characters, and using metaphors and similes. (And some other tips too!)

Elaine Forrestal is the author of many books and her latest is the picture book Miss Llewellyn-Jones Goes to Town (illustrated by Moira Court).

  1. I love the front cover and title! Will you be reviewing the book? And I love great writer and publisher sites, so I’m off to explore!

  2. Wonderful resource – thank you. I too am a budding children’s book writer and I am writing in my second language. Help!
    I will most definitely check out the link you so kindly provided.

    Many thanks and happy weekend.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Charlotta. Best of luck with your writing, writing in your second language is very impressive! Do you write in your main language, too?
