If you are a relatively new writer, start by writing about something you know. Maybe a family story. Talk to your grandparents about their life experiences. My mother and her 12 siblings have been an endless reservoir of stories for me. The length doesn’t matter when you first begin to write. Be a good storyteller.
“A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a
good children’s story in the slightest.” ~C.S. Lewis
If I hear an adult chuckle when reading my children’s books, I know I’ve done a good job.
“I dream my paintings, then I paint my dreams.” ~ Van Gogh Dream your story and then write it!
“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” ~ e e cummings
