Thanks and I enjoyed reading the articles about PB writing.  I read so many articles I don't know how I find the time to write, but I've found more reasons to write.   ::-)

This article reminds us to keep things simple.  What matters?  Well 1. in picture books illustrations matter, 2. concise language matters, 3. the message matters, 4. the story matters, 5. the ending matters.  It's always nice to look back see if you're staying true to the craft.

Thank you! I hadn't seen this but I like the way these tips highlight the essence of what's needed in writing a picture book.
