Hi. My name is Sandman. I’m one of the writing buddies of children’s author, Nancy I. Sanders.
In case you haven’t noticed, I like to sit inside the pantry. It gives me ideas for lots of sensory details to add to my stories. Like chewy gooey raisins and crunchy crackers and spicy cinnamon and my personal favorite fishy fishy tunafish.
I know that stuff like sensory details is important for writers. That’s why I keep a writer’s notebook handy with all sorts of worksheets in it I can refer to while I’m writing and editing and working on my manuscripts.
I hope you keep a writer’s notebook, too. If you do, here’s a growing list of worksheets you can add to it. And if you don’t, make your very own writer’s notebook today. Just buy a 3-ring binder, print out the worksheets here, pop then into the binder, then refer to them while you write!
These worksheets have been developed to help YOU write like the cat’s meow. Many of them are based on writing workshops my writing buddy, Nancy, has taught.
These worksheets are available now for a limited time FREE here on this site. (Did I say free? I wish tuna was free!) You can download them, print them out, and add them to your own writer’s notebook. And if you share them with your writing buddies, just be sure to always include the copyright and website information of our writing buddy, Nancy I. Sanders, as it’s printed along the bottom of each page.
