Transcript: 10/27/11

TOPIC: No naked ladies allowed. How do you make sure your portfolio is #kidlitart appropriate?

Thanks to some much needed advice from writer/illustrator Brooks Jones, who hosts #storyappchat Sundays at 9 pm Eastern, we're going to give transcripts another go. The process I had hopes for in August was still requiring about an hour of formatting to get the captured transcript in shape to upload. Brooks has given me some tips that cut the time down to about 15 minutes. Thanks for the help, Brooks! 

So, with fingers crossed but no guarantees, here is last Thursday's chat, in which we start out talking about one thing and quickly morph into something else! :-)
