Lion and lamb

The lion indeed lies down with the lamb, and here they both are, on my TV room rug.

But Alfie (the lion) is off at the kennel...I will soon go to pick him up...because I was gone all day at a workshop sponsored jointly by PEN NE and the NE chapter of SCBWI.  Other authors and illustrators were Bill Thomson, Kathryn Lasky, and Jacqueline Davies.

 

With a sold-out audience (actually, I think the event was free, so "sold" is a misnomer...well, a full house, anyway) it was an interesting day, with brief presentations on the general topic of challenges in work and career, followed by well-thought-out questions that each of us tried in different ways to answer.

And it was held in the handsome venue of the Danforth Museum in Framingham, MA.

I thought one of the most interesting—and honest—answers came from Bill Thomson to the question of "How do you deal with writer's -- or illustrator's -- block?" Bill said that he thought the term "writer's block" is simply an excuse for not doing your work. He's absolutely right.  It has (imho) become a too-commonly-used phrase that even kids have picked up and repeat as if it has great gravitas, when in truth it's just a silly catchphrase meaning that you need to catch your breath and then get back to the work at hand.

So there.

Thanks! It allows me to update it myself, unlike the old website, so perhaps it wont become obsolete and stagnant!

I'm very disturbed by the number of children who ask me about how I handle writer's block. When did teachers start teaching children about this? When did people start to label it? When I was a child, I wrote all the time and had no idea such a thing existed (if it does). I think what people label writer's block is an integral part of writing and you just keep going. But it's now treated as an illness and children (and adults) want a quick fix, like a pill, to get rid of it. Whew! Thanks for letting me get that off my chest because it really bothers me.

Sorry to be so long in responding to this, but I am on the road, as it were (currently in France)and time at the computer is scarce. But I did want to add my two cents worth about "writer's block". It's an annoying concept. Do brain surgeons get "neurosurgeons' block?" I don't think so. When it did become fashionable for writers to cop out in this way? Some days one is more productive, more creative than others. Big deal. It's a kind of romanticized idea, and I picture a woman in a peignoir collapsed on a couch with her hand over her forehead, murmuring, "I have writer's block." Get over it. And teachers: remove it from your vocabulary when dealing with young writers!
