I took another writing class this month, with picture book author Dashka Slater. And yes i attempted to write rhyme again. This time I really paid attention to meter, beats and all the rest. The finished story is called Mouse in the House, about a mischievous little boy who disobeys his parents and the consequences of that bad choice. The class is great because she shares everyone’s work and all of us help each other make the work better. You can check out the class at mediabistro.com. I won’t say the book is publishable, but it was a good exercise in understanding how rhyme works. My hat’s off to Dr. Seuss.
