Hi everyone.

Most of you know one of my passions is writing.

*bet you couldn’t guess that. LAUGHING* 

I’m honored to be a part of the KidLit TV team.  For those of you who haven’t checked out their website, it is full of videos that are kid-friendly.

STORYMAKERS: Features authors (and kidlit champions) who share something about a book of theirs. It could be an interview, or a yummy recipe, or a craft, or sharing other titles, and on and on. It’s a great way for children to see the people who are behind-the-book.

READ OUT LOUD: Who doesn’t like story time????? So gather around and listen in as someone (author/illustrator/literacy champion) reads a story and shares the artwork inside the covers.

READ, SET, DRAW!: Time to drag out your pencils, pens, markers, or water colors! Budding artists can learn first-hand to draw from illustrators!!!! How cool is that?!?

Podcasts: Many of the episodes are available as podcasts! You can always listen to an episode!

There’s a tab for crafts and thinking outside-the-box! There’s also Phil’s Fast 5 episodes, Two-In-A-Teepee, and so much more.

Check out: KidLit.TV, but be prepared to stay for a while!

Until next time…
Happy writing!

Thinking Thursday – Inspiring

VIBA

I am very honored to have been nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award by three amazing bloggers themselves: Sue Leopold, Donna McDine, and Cat Michaels.

Part of being nominated was to reveal 7 things about myself and to nominate others…

7 Things About Me:

  1. I’m short. 5’2″ to be exact. Yes, I have to use a step ladder or climb onto the counter to reach things on the top shelf at my house.
  2. I love to sing. If you read my One Lovely Blog Award post, you know I can yodel, but I love to sing too. My grandfather use to record himself playing the steel guitar. In the background, you could hear a little girl signing along. Yep, that was me.  🙂
  3. I was a tomboy. I loved to play in the dirt and football. Still do.  🙂
  4. I never want to grow up. Getting old stinks. Seriously!
  5. I like cold weather, but not FREEZING cold.
  6. Spring is my favorite time of the year. Everything is beginning or renewing… and it’s still cool.
  7. I grew up as an only child, but I have 10 siblings, 5 brothers and 5 sisters to be exact.  I lived with my mom and grandparents and didn’t have a sister from my mom until I was almost 12. I didn’t know my dad’s side until I was 25 and found out I had six other siblings. Can you say the best of both worlds?  🙂

There are so many inspirational bloggers out there that have been nominated. If I nominate you again, feel free to pass AND it is not mandatory that you participate either.

  • Katie Davis –  blog and  podcast
  • Julie Gribble’s New York Media Works blog

These two are full of so much information and inspire me to be a better writer and promoter.

Hope you enjoyed!

 

Until next time…

Happy Writing!

Helping authors, illustrators, educators, and parents explore the world of children’s literature.

www… KidLit.TV

Several months ago, I highlighted the then soon-to-be-launched website called, KidLit.TV.
(You can review the post, ~ HERE ~.)

Since KidLit.TV’s launch, it has been amazing how the kidlit community has gotten involved with this project. Julie Gribble, founder and president, saw a need for a resource website dedicated to educating people with video. Video is one of the largest way people can market, educate, and gain interest in a product.

Julie started the KidLit. TV Facebook Group Page and encourages people to post their own videos, as well as videos they find beneficial to them as long as it pertains to KidLit. She also asks people who post their own videos to share software, techniques, and tips with the group. This way everyone can learn and improve. The KidLit.TV Facebook Group is now over 1,000 members and is very active.

In November 2014, Julie launched the KidLit.TV website. When you go over there, be prepared to spend some time. There  is a wealth of videos to watch and learn from. You can find everything from book trailers to how-tos, from behind the scenes to exclusive videos produced by NYMW, called StoryMakers, hosted by Rocco Staino.

KidLit.TV also has launched a NEWSLETTER. Where they send updates, highlight events, and share information involving kidlit.

Last month, KidLit.TV Pinterest boards were launched with a party.  There are a variety of boards for you to look through connected to great information and videos! They already have over 250 followers there.

As you can see, KidLit.TV is expanding and gaining recognition in the children’s genre fields.

CBC had this to say:

KidLit TV is an exciting and informative destination for authors, illustrators, teachers, publishers, and anyone with a passion for children’s literature. — Children’s Book Council

#summersparks DAY 5: A Visual Writing Prompt: Begin at the End by Julie Gribble

Summer SparksA Visual Writing Prompt: Begin at the End.
by Julie Gribble

 

Visual learning

In a recent post here on her blog, Tracey encouraged us to include videos in our marketing strategy. MONDAY MARKETING: YOUTUBE  *VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR*

https://traceymcox.wordpress.com/2014/05/26/

“What better concept to get your message across. Let’s face the facts. MOST PEOPLE ARE VISUAL LEARNERS. This means a picture is worth a thousand words (which makes me sad … I’m an author! I live on words). You can tell someone something (directions/recipes/variations of color/yadda yadda), but if you SHOW them…It clicks!”

 

As one of those visual learners, I can tell you her words ring true to me.

Like most kids, I had a vivid imagination (still do) and an active body that always seemed to be in motion (not so much anymore). You’d usually find me up a tree, on a bike, or in the municipal pool – I just didn’t want to sit still. However, I would sit still for a moment to read a book, if that book was filled with pictures. Illustrations sparked my imagination – I’d think up a story of my own that I wanted to tell, and then scribble this version of the story next to images in the book. Upon reflection, I realize now that pictures prompted my interest in writing.

 

Endings are hard

Working in television for many years, behind the scenes on comedy shows, gave me a rare perspective on the creative writing process as skits were drafted, rehearsed, rewritten, rehearsed again, revised, and then performed live. This perspective could best be described as a master class in comedy writing. And indeed, I learned that a good ending, although difficult to write, is a critical element in every good skit or story. I also learned that even the pros have trouble with endings because endings are hard.

 

Using visuals to write satisfying endings

One of the best writing prompts I’ve ever come across, was taught in a screenwriting course. Each student was given a different photograph then asked to place it on the table in front of him or her. The teacher asked us to imagine that the picture in front of us depicted the last scene in our film – it was the last image seen by the audience before the credits rolled. We were asked to describe what was happening at that very moment, in as much detail as we could imagine. Then we were asked to tell the story that ended with that scene.

This exercise made us focus on just the ending of the story – no need to think about how the story might end, because we were already there.

 

Since good endings are hard to write, why not start with them first? So let’s try doing that here on Summer Sparks!

 

Choose your favorite picture below then imagine that it’s the last image in your story – don’t think about how the subject(s) got there, just think about what they’re doing, thinking, or feeling at the very moment this picture was taken.

 

Let’s begin with this image:

**click picture for better viewing**article-1207590-061B1271000005DC-144_634x838©Specialist Stock/Barcroft Media

What’s happening here?

Is the whale happy to meet this skinny walrus?

Or perhaps the whale now believes mermaids are real?

Have the hunter and whale come to a truce?

Or did this diver wish to meet the last whale in the sea?

 

1 – Chose your ending.

2 – Ok, now that you have your ending, tell us how they got there – think about what happened to the characters before this scene. That is your story to tell.

Writing Prompt

So, let’s continue the exercise. Imagine the last image in your story is depicted below. How does your story end? Let your imagination run wild and let the Summer Sparks fly!

How Visual Learning Supports Writing | Thinkspiration™ The Inspiration® Software Blog

http://www.inspiration.com/blog/2011/03/how-visual-learning-supports-writing/

“Pre-writing is essential to producing quality writing. Research indicates that skilled writers spend significantly more time organizing and planning what they are going to write.

So, when teachers ask students to create a bubble diagram, a web or any other visual diagram in the pre-writing process, it’s utilizing visual learning to help students clarify their thinking and organize their writing.”

Sensory Learning Styles | Grapplearts

http://www.grapplearts.com/Blog/2012/04/sensory-learning-styles

“Visual learners prefer to watch demonstrations and will often get a lot out of video taped instruction as well. You can sometimes tell you’re dealing with a visual learner when they ask, “Can I see that again?” Other types of learners would ask if you could do it again, or explain it again, but visual learners will often say they want to see it. It’s just a little sign that the person you’re coaching may be a visual learner.”

 

Articles on good endings:

How to Write Successful Endings | WritersDigest.com

http://www.writersdigest.com/writing-articles/by-writing-goal/improve-my-writing/how_to_write_successful_endings

“The most-asked question when someone describes a novel, movie or short story to a friend probably is, “How does it end?” Endings carry tremendous weight with readers; if they don’t like the ending, chances are they’ll say they didn’t like the work. Failed endings are also the most common problems editors have with submitted works.

Making your ending a success involves two things. The first is content; the events of the ending must satisfy everything that has gone before. There’s no easy way to tell anyone how to do this; it depends entirely on what the work has seemed to promise the reader. Whatever that was must be delivered.”

Teaching That Makes Sense!

www.ttms.org/PDFs/01%20Writing%20Strategy%20Guide%20v001%20(Full).pdf

 

“• Feel finished. A good ending has a certain feel to it, and that feeling is one of completeness: there’s nothing else the writer needs to say, the piece has been wrapped up, summed up, and tied up so completely that the reader feels completely satisfied.

• Give the reader something to think about or do. Readers like to ponder a bit at the end of a piece, they like to have something to consider, something to reflect on, something to take with them for the future. Ideally, your ideas will linger in their mind long after they’ve read your last sentence. That’s the test of truly effective writing.

• Meet your reader’s expectations. With the beginning and middle of your piece, you’ve set up certain expectations in the minds of your readers. Your ending has to live up to those expectations, it has to fulfill the promise of everything that has come before.

• Too often, readers feel let down by the ending. And that can ruin their entire experience of a piece. It’s not that readers are mean people with impossibly high standards. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Your readers want you to have a great ending so badly that they often can’t help but disappoint themselves. This is just another reason why endings are so important and why good endings are so hard to write.

• The ending is the last thing your audience will read. As we’ve talked about before, you have a lot of responsibility when it comes to ending your piece effectively. After all, the ending is the last thing your readers will read and that means they’re quite likely to remember it better than other parts of your piece. But this means you have an opportunity, too. You can use your ending to say something very important with the knowledge that your readers will be listening closely to your every word. There are only two places where you can count on having your reader’s full attention. One is at the beginning, the other is at the end.”
