Story Painter is a blog for newbie author/illustrators to learn more about their craft. I have lot to share about writing for children and a lot to learn about illustrating. Perhaps we can share the journey together.

J is for Juxtaposition
What the heck does this word mean. It is the act or instance of placing close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast.
Yeah, that happens in writing. Don't we place the hero and the villain together for contrast. Sometimes it's as simple as child vs parent, or even friend vs friend.
What do you juxtapose in your writing to give it contrast?
