Writing / Re: Using Short (Italicized) Blurps As Chapter Intros

I think it could be a neat concept if it's done well and if it's truly the best way to tell the story. On the other hand, if it's only done as a band-aid, that will be apparent. I think testing it out is the only way to know for sure.

I attended my first Highlights Foundation workshop in June and it was amazing. Highlights takes care of your every need. They feed you well, provide plenty of caffeine and chocolate, and everyone is very welcoming. The grounds are beautiful and provided motivation and inspiration. It was expensive but I received a partial scholarship plus discounted pricing and they let me pay in installments. I solicited family and friends through gofundme to help pay for the rest so I could attend what I knew would be a game changer for me. The workshop I attended was Super Children's Book Boot Camp on picture book writing. Two of the instructors, Pat Cummings and Denise Fleming, have continued to provide support through group e-mails and a private Facebook page so thankfully for me my experience didn't end when I left my adorable cabin in the woods. I hope to return to The Barn in the future.
