Title: Chapter Book Writing Blueprint from CBI
Post by: orchardka on January 15, 2020, 10:27 AM
Has anyone ever done the Chapter Book Writing Blueprint from Children's Book Insider? Considering signing up and would love to hear your experience. Feel free to send me a personal message if you'd prefer. Thanks!

I know this is a late reply, but this is the first I've heard of Writing Blueprint, and if you did end of trying it, I'm curious as to your experience.

I admit I'm a bit skeptical. Sites that purport to  have a golden formula for writing a book feel a bit like ads for weight-loss programs to me--promising a lot but often delivering something mildly helpful at best.  (Not saying Writing Blueprints is unhelpful; just that it's my default reaction to programs like it with no additional information or experience.)

If you decided not to try it, I'm curious to hear what led to that decision, if you're up for sharing.

Hi Katrina,

I did not end up buying it. I did watch the lessons and materials I could access for free, and I did find those helpful. There wasn't really a particular reason I didn't purchase it... more just trying to save money and see if I could give it a go on my own first :)

Good luck with your writing!
