Get the Look: Ladies Library

April 24, 2013

I just couldn't stop thinking about those pretty library spaces yesterday and how much we all want a space to call our own.  Let's face it, very rarely do we get the luxury of having an entire room to ourselves.  But a corner?  I think that's doable.  And it's much less expensive to do it well.  Smaller rug, only one chair and bookcase equal half the price.  The look I created would be gorgeous as an entire room but works equally well along a small wall or corner.  No excuses from your husbands now ladies!  This vignette could even be slipped into a more masculine family room without too much complaint.

  16. Thanks for your message. Have you read lots of picture books? It's an excellent way to get a really good feel for what works. And it's worth checking out the recent ones (so you could go into a bookshop and read through lots of them -very carefully of course!). And if you buy some that you think are great, or get some really good ones out of the library, try typing them out and looking at them as manuscripts so you can see where the page turns happen and the shape of the story. That can really help give you a feel for it. I would really recommend joining SCBWI and there are all sorts of events where you can learn from other authors and editors and agents. We've got critique groups which can be extremely valuable in helping you make your story the very best it can be. My latest post is all about feedback on your writing, which might help (click on my name on the right hand side of the blog and it'll come up). And don't worry about your story not coming out perfect first time round: it often takes lots and lots of editing to get it right.
