Writing for Children


Hello Fellow Writers!

Yesterday I actually worked on the plot of "Snowed in With a Millionaire", just like I said I would. I think the power outage that knocked out my internet helped - all I could do was use my laptop to write until the battery died! If it wasn't for that power outage I very well could have spent hours looking for the perfect sink for my bathroom renovation.

Right now I'm reading "Ruthless Awakening" by Sara Craven, a Harlequin Presents novel. So far I am really enjoying it.

In my writing class last night, Maureen, who has written a children's book, was told by our teacher that she should write a query letter and see about getting it published. I'm slightly jealous since I haven't heard any comments like that yet for "The Movie Star's Very Personal Assistant", but she's got a great story so I hope it sells.

And on that note, I wanted to share some information I found about writing for children. The suggestions regarding revision really hold true for any type of writing. From cbiclubhouse.com, "The Community for Success-Minded Children's Book Writers", here are five ways to make your children's book manuscript shine before you send it to a publisher.



Today I will be continuing my work on "Snowed in With a Millionaire". I have to get the plotting done before NaNoWriMo starts next month!!

Wish me luck, and good luck to you too!
Yours Truly,
Shoshanna Evers
