I stalk other blogs fairly regularly. I’m always looking for good advice and especially tools that make the process easier.

This week I came across a series of worksheets on the website Adventures in Children’s Publishing. These little jewels came to me via @juliemusil on Twitter.

Now. You don’t have to be a children’s book writer to use these worksheets. THEY ARE AMAZING. As is the entire site. I downloaded the worksheets and even after just a quick read through, I found ways to tighten my ms and my characters.

So…this week’s favorite post is really a series of posts, so I will provide the links for you!! Good Luck, and let me know what you think!! Also…if you need a little load lightening on Friday’s, try participating in Favorite Post Friday. (Click here for a listing of other weekly/daily memes).

  1. Thanks so much, Charissa! Appreciate the shout-out and so glad the worksheets were helpful for you. I have to say that I think my favorite worksheet I've done so far (the one that has been the most helpful to me personally) is the Forty Questions for a Stronger Manuscript. I need to examine my stories in a lot of different ways to keep from getting into trouble. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thanks again and good luck!

  2. Charissa, thanks for the mention. Martina and Marissa at Adventures have a bounty of great tools over there. I could spend forever on their blog!

  3. @Julie Musil I know, Julie! I've already prepared myself that next week is going to consist of me reading over and expanding on those worksheets. Their site really is an endless resource. Thanks for tweeting about it!
