    Teresa,

    Great suggestions, Teresa. Like that you got real about incorporating life and being creative. Too much pressure is not good for the creative mind. But realistic goals are excellent motivators. As CBI's Picture Book Expert, I can confirm the need for goals to prompt you to write. Too many people say they have "a great idea for a story." The difference between wannabe writers and working writers is that we write! Goals are one way to jumpstart the process of actually writing and producing work that might someday be worthy of publication.

    So glad you like this first video. The new video on how to nail those agent/editor pitch sessions at conferences will be up soon! Let me know if there are any topics you'd specifically like me to cover.
