KEENE WRITER - Barbara Scanlon Keene

Writing happens anytime and anywhere. Even at a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game. 

That's one of my favorite things about writing --inspiration can come from daily life or oddball experiences. And you can never guess where you'll be when an idea strikes. 

Nine times out of ten I say something to my grandchildren and as soon as it comes out of my mouth I can hear the potential picture book it can become. 

"You have rocks in your ruffles," or "You can't have donuts for dinner" are two examples of these silly sentences turned into book titles.

I am also working on a few commercial fiction novels for readers that don't need pictures with their text.  If I could just figure out if the plots blend as smoothly as they do in my imagination I could finally get them closer to submission and publication. 

Focusing on one manuscript at a time is definitely not one of my strengths. But I consistently have a good time in all of my confusion.
