A “Just Write” Interview with Author, Educator, Editor Emma Walton Hamilton

We’re welcoming a return visitor to By Word of Beth today, Emma Walton Hamilton. I got to know Emma in 2010 when I took her Just Write for Kids online/home study course in writing picture books.

Changes are afoot…

Yes, you’re in the right place! This is By Word of Beth, despite the rather different appearance. At the beginning of the year, Joanna Marple of Miss Marple’s Musings suggested we choose a word to guide us through the new year. The word I chose was/is DYNAMIC. As I said in my comment on her blog post, dictionary.com gives the definition of dynamic as  “pertaining to or characterized by energy…
