What genre would reincarnation fall into?Fantasy.
Readers, to the comments! I'm sure you have some great resources.
Under the influence of cold medicine, I cranked out what I think is a cute picture book (text only, no art, but I'm still taking cold medicine so watch out). I am not new to writing, but am new to writing for kids. Specifically, I would like to learn more about rhyme, verse and poetry in picture books.
I've found a lot of references to how bad most writers are at it, but not a lot of ideas/advice on how to evaluate or improve.
Do you have any thoughts? I would like to figure out a) how bad my verse is and b) how to fix it. (I do assume it must be awful because I am high on drugs.)
I'm interested in knowing if I can legally use feature stories I wrote that were already published by a community newspaper I work for. I understand that after 90 days, the stories legally belong to me and that I can rework them and sell them to magazines, trade journals, etc. for additional publication.Does this sound correct?
Who do you understand this from? The newspaper? Because if it's not the newspaper (or more specifically the contract you signed with them), it doesn't mean a thing.
