Time for another question card from a student.
“I want you to make more chapter books because I love chapter books.”
I love chapter books too Kaitlyn. And I am always working on a few chapter books. I just finished a revised draft of a middle grade novel and I have another graphic novel that has chapters, so that might count. But writing takes time and picture books keep me very busy.
When you write picture books you have to rid your mind of a lot of the conventions of chapter books so it takes me time when I switch between the genres. Chapter books involve a lot of plot compared to a picture book. And in picture books your words are very sparse because your images carry a lot of the story.
But I am working away on new books all the time. Hopefully some of them will prove good enough to be released!
