I spent the month of February writing a proposal for the SCBWI-Work in Progress grant. Rebecca Petruck encouraged me to re-vision the first chapter of Half-Truths and tirelessly cheered me on--even as she delivered the "but I really think it would be better if you did it this way" news.
When I finished the revision she sweetly rewarded me with this "Book Burst" which she made from an old book:
She found the idea in The Repurposed Library by Lisa Occhipinti.
This video gives you a brief idea of how to bring new life to an old book. Next time you want to present a writer with a special gift check out Occhipinti's book.
Rebecca, by the way, is a fantastic editor and critiquer. She has recently launched her own critique business and I highly recommend her. Even if she made me rewrite my first chapter a bazillion times. Or maybe, because she made me do that.
Pass it on.
