HOW TO WRITE A CHILDREN’S BOOK

29 11 2017

If books are magic, then children’s books are an extra special brand of magic. The books we read as kids don’t just stick with us, they form who we are and what we believe and how we see the world. Writing a children’s book is a calling, but learning how to write a children’s book is also a very long process with nitty-gritty, non-magical details—and it’s full of variables. No two journeys are exactly the same, but if you’re an aspiring children’s book writer, here is a rough outline of how to go from idea to book!

STEP 2. CRACK OPEN THAT NOTEBOOK AND GET TO WORK

STEP 3. BE PERSISTENT

STEP 4. CELEBRATE! THEN REVISE

STEP 5. BRING IN OTHER EYES

STEP 6. DO YOUR RESEARCH!

STEP 7. CRAFT A KILLER QUERY

STEP 8. CULTIVATE PATIENCE

STEP 9. CULTIVATE SOME MORE PATIENCE, BUT ALSO KEEP WRITING

STEP 10. WORK WITH EDITOR! AND MORE PATIENCE!
