I always wanted to write a story. The more i learned, the more i wanted to share.. But something made me realize i wasnt going to write a novel, something made me realize i did not want to share my imaginative mind. I know people will hate me for it and dont mistake me for saying;" I dont want to share a story " , cause i do.. Im going to share a story made as a childrens tale..

In my mind i had stories with over a hundred thousand words, instead im going to make them into a tale of a thousand.. The more i learn, the more i understand.. The less i will share.. But i will share a children story that can be told a thousand years from now.. Instead of a story of my imaginative mind..

Awesome, i have been trying to write horror short stories, inspired, and as a tribute to Lovecraft,

What helps me, is to write scenes and happenings at random, then putting it together with mind glue.

I also like to hide thoughts in stories..

If you think you have a "children's story" in you, read it to some children before you share it with anybody else. That's how to be sure that it works.

Illustration is key with childrens books. Do you do any of your own art?

good luck man.
i wrote a novella. i thought i had a 100k word novel in my head as well but i found out very quick that it is #ing hard. i had a very difficult time dealing with the passage of time in my book. i dont think it flows well.
anyway....sorry

i often wonder how you become a great success with kids books. i think ats is correct.
i think about it because i am an avid reader. between my wife and i we have a couple thousand books. my daughter is 4 and she has several hundred. i read her stories at night like goodnight moon or no david and i wonder.

those books will be in print forever now and they are a few word per page books. no big deal.
i could crank that out.

so what makes a book like that successful?

good luck. i hope you do it
