Snippet Sunday

I did a few more lions this week but didn't take photos of them.  I mostly worked on writing text for my book. I've made a lot of progress after realizing that I have to write the humorous lead in bits before the non-fiction facts so that they will flow seamlessly together. Seems obvious, I know, but I made the silly mistake of not approaching it more like a story.  The info will naturally work better for kids if there is some semblance of flow, even if the entries are not explicity related one to the other.

As I was telling frigg, this is coming hard to me, despite my silly remarks long ago that "it shouldn't be too hard" to write nonfiction.  It still has to be entertaining, informative, and accessible.  Tricky for one of my convoluted tendencies.
