Blog Rec: Wordswimmer

Wordswimmer is Bruce Black's blog about writing for children. In an e-mail, Bruce told me a bit about his site. He writes,

Mostly, I hope to explore different ideas about how stories come to the page... and what's necessary to keep a reader's attention. There are weeks when I'll dive into craft books and share insights (my own and others), other weeks when I might examine a  work of fiction myself and share my response. At some point I began asking writers to contribute their thoughts on their own writing process...

Go visit Wordswimmer. It's different from some of the other blogs about children's literature in that the focus is on the writing process. You will find some neat pieces on craft (points of view, plot reversals, and so on) and interviews, including a chat with Cynthia Leitich Smith. Bruce features lots of helpful links in his articles, too.
