Hey Dan! Do you start your books with sketches before writing the words? I think you said at workshop that is your method of writing. I work the same way. I find it easier to sketch first and then use the words to fill the gaps and move the story along.
I start most of my picture books this way, but not all of them. Some begin with text.
Thanks. I am trying to write first on a few story ideas just to see what happens.
