What writers write when they 1) aren't writing, 2) are avoiding writing or 3) need a word count to convince their spouses they are writing.

Origami n' Stuff 4 Kids

bring back the caustic critic

Call it paranoia of the creative mind, but I'm wondering if there's some sort of cosmic hit list. It hasn't been the best year, what with writing acquaintances falling ill or passing away in tragic accidents. And now, news that one of our talented young illustrators in SCBWI has succumbed to leukemia just before the holidays. As if rejection notices weren't enough to contend with. Whatever happened to bad reviews?

My heart goes out to the friends and families of two brilliant souls, who lived life doing what they loved best: writing and illustrating for children.

And Albert? Get well, will ya? We're all rooting for you...Buy his book when it hits the stands.
