Last week, I spoke for the SCBWI-IL Chicago network along with Savy Leiser. We had a lovely group who were interested in my sharing the slides from that talk. From Craft to Career: How to Make A Financial Life as a Children’s Book Writer and take note: as a busy writer, you don’t HAVE to waste your precious time formatting PPT presentations. Spend that time on what you’re actually saying and the content of your talk. Thanks to everyone for coming and listening so intently. There were a number of awesome questions related to the life of a writer. It was a very honest and open discussion. Feel free to post comments or questions you might have, and I’ll be happy to post a response when my schedule permits!
