On Writing

ffk-2

In 2015, due to my husband’s health, I had to give up writing for almost two years to care for him. He is doing well and now I’m able to return to my writing, which I have greatly missed. So when an author’s copy of a magazine arrived today, I’m taking it as a good sign.

The Classroom Bookshelf

Another good blog for non-fiction children’s writers.

I’ve been taking photographs of the changing Aspens in Northern Arizona. It seems they are more beautiful each year, or am I a better photographer? Whatever the reason, I want to write about this, why leaves change color and when they do it and why only some trees. Every time I write non-fiction I learn a lot.

I have one more assignment to finish, on boy’s basketball (and I’m learning a lot there too) and next I think I’ll write about the leaves and submit it without an assignment. I want to branch out, submit to other publishers rather than just the two I often write for. Back to the slush pile, but that’s part of writing.

I hope that wherever you are, you’re enjoying fall colors too.

If you write non-fiction, be sure to read this. I know I’m going to read it thoroughly. The more I learn the more I know how little I know!

Fulcrum Books

As I research publishers since returning to writing after nearly a year off, I only post here the ones who accept manuscripts and give clear guidelines. This is a “green” publisher and they accept only by e-mail. They are looking for non-fiction and open to submissions.

If you have information about publishers that you’d like to share, please email me.
