I bought WE PLANTED A TREE at the 2010 SCBWI conference in Los Angeles, which was also the first conference at which I took a picture book writing workshop (taught by Diane Muldrow). Find out more about Donalyn Miller's Summer Book-A-Day Challenge on the Nerdy Book Club site, and you can read archives of my #BookADay posts. Question #1: Could you please send me a photo of a random object in your office and tell me about it? This cubby on my desk (just above my computer) houses mementos, well wishes, inspiration, and things that just make me smile.


Many nights I come home from school, revise the chapter we just critiqued, and type up a new chapter. There are religious icons given by friends, a skeleton that reminds me to stick to the basics, a vintage light bulb that reminds me that new ideas are everywhere, a Mickey Mouse magnet—since Mickey was the first iconic American character for kids (in my opinion), fortunes, a frog with a golden crown (just like you have to kiss a lot frogs to find your prince, you have to write a lot of manuscripts to find a story), a small mug of marbles from my childhood (because children are at the center of what I do as a writer), a cowboy Christmas ornament in honor of my first picture book, and more. I am working with twenty-three fourth grade students who are critiquing my manuscript chapter-by-chapter—one chapter a day.
I’m excited to write for this small group of kids, my own focus group, my own critique group in residence. I think most of us spend a lot more time talking, blogging, social media-ing, and thinking about writing than we actually spend writing.


Know what picture books are out there, which are winning awards, which are breaking new ground.
Stay in touch with your writing buddies, make new writing friends, meet editors and agents at conferences, friend fellow writing tribe members on Facebook. I've since met Rob in person at a SCBWI-LA conference and am also illustrating his new RUBY ROSE picture book series.
