It's Done!

What goes into finishing a book? Legendary author-illustrator and Caldecott honoree David Shannon talks about how to end a story, designing front and back covers and end papers, and how to deal with the psychological fatigue while you continue to tweak your book until you can rejoice in the final product!

In this presentation from Picture Book Summit 2018, David gets real and talks about how your fear of success maybe be what's keeping you from finishing your books. Humorous and endearing, David offers practical advice for getting over self-sabotage and getting to the end.
