Rebus Writing

While I'm enjoying the view of the Atlantic Ocean from the balcony of a nice, cool, air conditioned condo, and the company of my grandchildren you can enjoy a little research on writing rebus stories.








Remember:
  • Read tons of rebus stories in children's magazines
  • Follow these links to get specifics about writing rebus stories
  • Write a few for practice
  • Get a critique partner to check them behind you
  • Re-write them!
  • Submit them [If you don't send them off you'll never find out whether or not you actually got the hang of it, now will you?]

Jean,

Thanks for all the rebus tips and links. I looked for rebus story samples using NCLIVE and printed out several. Thanks for sharing that tip earlier. You are so good to share your knowledge.

Have fun at the beach.
