Outside the USA / Re: Iceland, anyone?

Yes, thank you Lawrence for the link.  I had not heard a word about this elsewhere.  Good to know there is a children's literature festival in Iceland, and I will definitely have to try to get to it next fall!

The Craft of Writing / Re: Numbering Chapters and dividing into Part 1,2,3
« Last post by Vijaya on Yesterday at 10:11 AM »
I've read books written in parts subdivided by chapters and I believe they started with 1 with each new section but I can't remember. And it made sense because they were separate stories tied by one thing throughout. See ECHO by Pam Munoz Ryan.
If it's the same story with MAJOR turning points that necessitate parts, you can probably go either way. Or you can avoid the whole numbering and title the chapters, which isn't easy, but I love books with chapter titles that are clever (see Katie Kennedy's books--dewsanddamps here)  or with epigraphs (see Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd).
Happy reading and writing. V.
