I learned that it takes lot of time to write a book. I always thought writers always had a spelling checker so they can rewrite only once more.
If she is looking for one, I will volunteer!
You both must be good spellers.
I learned that you can sometimes change life stories into real stories.
I wonder if she can change horses to her character!
Oh yeah great idea
I think she can draw anything if she wants to!
I learned that rosemary wells creats story's fromhe two doughters.I thought writing is easy and you can do it in one day but it is not like that.you have to write three or four times to get the punctuation and spelling correct .Also I learned and memorized the tequnic to draw a skeleton so probably I will be able to draw a skeleton.
I learned that it takes practice of drawing skeletons and animals.I wonder if she is going to make a book about going to Tokyo that would really exiting.I didn't agree with her that you need to be a writer when you are twenty years old because some people publish a story when they are younger.i also want to be as good as Rosemary Wells, she is really good at drawing animals than me.
I learned, to draw like that, it takes lots of practice and skill. You have to concentrate, to e able to draw like that. You have to do drills, and draw skeletons, to draw your characters like that. She practiced step by step to become a brilliant illustrator, like herself.
I think that we were so lucky that Rosemary Wells visited our school, especially on her birthday!!!!!!
We forgot to say Happy Birthday!
I learned that Rosemary Wells gets her ideas for characters from her daughters and many other people. The most inspiring characters for me were Max and Ruby, because they were from her daughters!
I thought that drawing portraits of people were hard, but when Rosemary Wells taught the junior school, it was much easier than I thought!
I was also happy that I got an autograph from Rosemary Wells!
I learned that she writes a story based on her experiences. I also learned that she had to practice a lot on her drawings, like drawing a skeleton in five minutes, to come to a level that she could publish a book. Also I could know that one of her Yoko stories was based on three girls about having a sushi in their lunch and getting teased at school.
I enjoyed the time when Rosemary Wells came to our school! We are so lucky to see her in our school! I'm sure that she uses lots of ideas to come up with her drawings! I learned that she practices drawing really hard.I also learned that it is a lot of practice to draw skeletons and animals too! Another thing I learned that she wrote a story of Max and Ruby,from her daughters!!
I learned that you can write a lot from experiment that happened to you and make it very funny and imaginative at the same time. It takes hard work and concentration to draw and write such amazing books! My favorite are Max and Ruby books and these books are from Rosemary Well's own life! It is very hard to imagine because they are so funny that it feels like a fiction book. She also taught us that if you knew how to draw a skeleton of a animal or human being you are most likely to get a good pictures of animals. She taught how to draw a very good picture in a short time and I thought I could never draw like that! She also has so much talent at all the things she taught us! I wish she could visit again!
I have more! It was really nice of her to draw a skeleton. She also taught us how to draw a suspicious face! Next time I want to ask her if she can draw Max or Ruby. I learned that it takes alot of time to draw one thing!
I learned that being an author can be very frustrating, but if you keep trying then soon your book will be published. I learned that an illustrator is a professional, so even if you draw a picture really fast it still looks very nice. But when I saw the video of her studio, I realized that Rosemary Wells draws each picture very precisely, slowly, and carefully. I also liked how she based her characters on experiences from her real life. Yesterday I had knitting class with Ms. Matsuka, and when I started knitting I wasn't good at all, and I started getting very frustrated. I realized that an author feels the same way when they have to rewrite a book over and over. And actually my father accidentally erased this whole post so this is the second time I'm writing this!!
Me too Hina! When I pressed submit it did not work and I accidentally pressed delete! It is WAY OVER THAN FUSTRATING!
I agree too Chihiro!(^.^)
