A few practical ideas for my friends in the world of children’s books.
1. If someone brilliant offers advice, take them up on it. Even if they don’t write ‘your sort of thing’. Even if you worry you might be like Little Miss Needy. Cos you get this sort of thing:
Pls RT: I’ll be in chemo all day. Got a question about writing, publishing or my current situation? Ask me with the hashtag
2. Act on it. I did what Tommy said during the Shetland Folk Festival and these are my results:
- fragments that I can use for my #TheGarret tweets
- ideas for three Tales from The Garret – at least
- background for something a bit Norse to come…
3. Follow it up. I am delighted to support Tommy’s Patreon
- which means I get FREE STUFF
- which says thank you practically
- which means he will have to come through cos I will need his help
4. Find out more. Read the blog. Follow The #TommyVCancer Blogtour organised by Viv Dacosta.
- even if you’re not a writer, you’re a reader
- you’ll find a book to buy for you and/or someone else
- you’ll find brilliant blogs you never knew existed
