Writers & Writing!
Do you think you’d like to write for children? Well, it took me 10
years from the time I decided I wanted to be a writer until my first
book was published. What took so long? Learning my craft. I
didn't study writing in college. I didn't even know I wanted to be a
writer until I had children and started reading children's books to
them. So I had to learn the hard way, by trial and error. I piled up
a lot of rejection letters in those years, but I'm not sorry. I think I
learned a lot along the way. I tell people who are interested in
becoming writers that there are basically three things you need to
do. Read, Write, and get Criticism. The other things you need are
what I call the Two P's - Patience and Persistence!
The World Wide Web is a wonderful resource for aspiring
writers. By visiting different sites you can find just about
everything you need to know to get you started. I’ve listed
some of my favorites below. Just click on them and you’re
on your way!
