The Profound Affect Of A Picture Book
* My little wild thing.
Ten sentences long, 19 million copies sold, and a story so sublime a movie is made of it 40+ years after it was first published: Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are." I just wanted to address that over the weekend it was the top-grossing movie. According to news articles, adults made up a large chunk of the audience. I think it goes to show that a great book, whether it's ten sentences or ten thousand sentences long, can stay with you your whole life.
I'm livin' the dream. I have two jobs- mother and writer. I may not receive a paycheck for either, but I'm rich in love.
A friend recently wrote to me, "...as an author that balances writing and family, you must be YOU. Love is a reality that flows out." I couldn't agree more!
