I have a rather large collection of picture books — 500-plus and growing. Many of them are biographies, so I had assumed. A biography is not too hard to figure out. Right? Wrong, not until you read the fine print. Many of the biographies in my collection are not biographies at all, but fictionalized accounts. Geez, I never knew. Is that ok? Must be 'cause many of those books also have those little golden awards stickers attached, a ringing endorsement of the fictionalized biography, as far as I can tell. I'm throwing out this manuscript I've been slaving over — this step-by-step, ho-hum retelling of events, and telling the story I'd really like to tell: The fun one where I’ve filled in the holes with a handful of creative license.
No, I know it's not Thursday like this post states. But, for some reason, Blogger won't let me post more than one post per day with out making it a new day. So, don't feel silly pretending it's Wednesday — 'cause it is.
