Writing a book for children or young adults - no matter how long or short - is a challenge. Sure, you could just sit down and let the words flow. But the reality is - except for a lucky few - first drafts rarely happen that way. Co-authors Coe and Malone know - and you know - there's no "one way" to write a picture book or novel. That's where Writing Kidlit 102: Your First Draft comes in. This book will help get that story out of your heart and onto the page. On your terms. In your time. In the way that works for you.

Coe and Malone also give you tools to combat the mental challenges that stalk the writing process. Think: Motivational activities to overcome fears, tips to catch you up if you're behind, and strategies to push you forward if you're blocked. Because who doesn't need a little help holding yourself accountable? Kicking writer's block to the curb? Calling out your procrastinating self? (Are you raising your hand?)

So if you're ready to call yourself a writer and banish the word "aspiring," you've come to the right place.
