Thursday Tip: Take a Book, Sit & Type

I can’t remember at which conference I heard this advice, and who gave it; but I remember it being very good and useful, especially for an aspiring writer.

The steps are simple:

  1. Pick your favorite picture book–I’m a little bit curious… Title? 🙂
  2. Sit at your favorite writing spot with a writing device–your desk, a coffee shop, your bookstore or library…
  3. Open the book, and type the entire manuscript.

If you can and if it is an area of interest, make it a multicultural PB. What did you learn? How does it feel?

I’m doing this exercise with Show Way, by Jacqueline Woodson. I’ll be back later today to share my experience, and I look forward to reading about yours. 🙂

Merry Thursday,
