Janice Yuwiler Interview  Cont.

February 2010

Cynthia: Do you have a favorite quote regarding writing that helps keep you inspired/motivated?

Janice: Not so much a quote as the internal desire to share a story. I really, really like to tell stories – true or make believe I don’t care – as long as I get to tell it.

Cynthia: What one piece of advice would you share with writers not yet published?

Janice: Join a critique group. Feedback from other children’s writers (or illustrators if you’re an illustrator) will help push your work to the next level – and best of all, it’s free!
