Writing for Chiidren
I'm working on a story right now that is burning in my heart. It has for a long time, simmered there, but now I know it's time to write it. I have started this weekend. The thing about writing for children is that you must get down to the very essence of the heart of the story and let go of everything else. All that is left is the soul of the story. There is a lot of struggle in creating that and finding words that a child can grasp while using language that makes the story sing. A daunting task! I am thankful for prayer, help from not only the Creator of the best selling book of all time, but also the Creator of the universe is definitely a must! Yep, He is an author and illustrator.
