I am honored to be a contributor to a blog that I love, Sharing Our Notebooks curated by children’s author and teacher Amy Ludwig VanDerwater. I have given writing teachers a quick peek inside my notebooks in the past, but with Amy’s blog as inspiration, this time I am really putting myself out there, baring entries that fed the works closest to my heart.

Read the full blog post here. Then be sure to snoop around the blog to see others’ notebooks and pick up some try-it tips for your own writing inspiration.
