For your writing/illustrating practice, if you're looking for a jump-start, consider:
What would you create if you could go back in time and give the picture book or middle grade or YA title you create to your younger self? What would have made an impact on you, then? What does that inspire you to create, now?
Start with 12 minutes brainstorming, or freewriting, or sketching, and see where it takes you.
