Meet Leslie Schultz and her daughter Julia Braulick as they tell us about Doing a Mother-Daughter Writing Collaboration Right.
Julia Braulick is a homeschooled thirteen-year-old Quaker who loves learning, writing fiction, reading, and her poodle, Peanut. She plans to be a prairie ecologist when she grows up and will be building a solar panel from scratch this fall.
As a girl, Leslie Schultz yearned to be Laura Ingalls Wilder. Now she loves living in Minnesota, reading, quilting, taking pictures, making soup, writing (poetry, fiction, essays), and learning new things with her daughter, Julia, and her husband, Tim.
Leslie is the author of The Howling Vowels, a middle grade book that has been deemed "a sweet modern day Little House story". Julia helped immensely with this book and is the author of its lexicon. And Sometimes Y, the second book in the series, is being written presently.
In “Doing a Mother-Daughter Writing Collaboration Right,” author Leslie Schultz and her daughter share how their first project, Do Life Right, Inc. title The Howling Vowels grew out of their homeschooling experiences and describe how they are working as full co-authors on a sequel, And Sometimes Y.
Leslie and Julia explain how they imagine original characters growing and changing, develop new plot lines, introduce new characters, share actual drafting, resolve differences of opinion, handle writers’ block, and weave details from real life into a fictional world.
