Writing Motivation: Who will be next?

I really enjoyed this video, where it touches upon not just writing, not just writer’s block, but the raw emotions that writers endure. Even more beautiful is how the video illustrates this through scenes from movies (many about authors) to show you, not just tell you, the pain, joy, and adventure that writing is all about.

Children’s Books

One of my fondest memories reminisces to moments I read books to my son. I’d come home in time to read bed time stories, or spend afternoons sharing the pages with him. We read Little Critter books, to nature themed picture books, to the classics of fairy tales and folklore.

Sometimes I’d change the characters around, to keep my son his toes (or make him laugh). Once the Three Little Pigs became the Three Little Aardvarks living in houses made from food, with a pig that would eat the houses instead of blow them down.

So lately, I’ve considered extending my writing into the genre of children’s books. I’m compiling ideas, considering graphics, and weighing the time away from other writing to explore this.

I’m sharing some things I found that I think will help, and might help others do the same.
