Tammi's session was a real hoot. From the start she was extremely engaging and funny. It was a fast-paced session and you could tell she loves writing picture books!
Tammi's first mandatory tip? You must read, read, read a LOT of picture books. Study them and determine what you like, what you don’t like and what you would do differently.
Ask yourself if your manuscript:
- Offers a variety of scenes?
- Cuts to the chase?
- Has a universal theme?
Some of Tammi's top secrets:
Create the right character (A.R.F.) – Active, Relatable and Flawed character
Give the MC a problem/conflict.
Amp up the tension.
Amp up the heart and humor
