I can't believe that we're close to being half way through another year! Is it just grannies that think time flies by, or is it kids as well? Santa will be here again in no time, yay, presents, delicious food, and family time. But back to business Judi..........
You'll remember I told you about the exciting new book that illustrator extraordinaire Deborah Hinde and I are working on together - well guess what
The text is now with the editor, so that means it's a step closer to being published. This photo was taken 2 weeks ago when we were working in her studio, busy editing. Deb is working on the illustrations as I type this, and I can't wait until I can share a few with you. You're going to love it!
It's been interesting for me to work with an illustrator, as I don't have to write and explain everything in the text. I can let the illustrator do some of the work for me, and Deb's illustrations certainly do the work. It's been a great learning lesson for me. See, even grannies can learn something new!
You'll all be settled back into school now for term 2, and might already be looking forward to the next holidays haha. I've been enjoying working at Pukete School, helping the children with writing their speeches. It's been been a lot of fun. I also enjoyed time at Hukanui School sharing poetry and writing tips. I'll be off to Te Totara and Rototuna schools soon for crazy poetry performances.
