The stories that grab my attention right away are the silly stories that make me giggle right along with the kids. Those are the kind of stories I like to write.
When you can can laugh along with the kids, you touch their heart. You connect with the child within you. A good story that earns a chuckle is worth its weight in Play-Doh!
Add in a story that is well-written in rhyme and carved with good meter and WHOA! The kids are hooked.
There is also room for stories that steal your heart. My story about a Monarch caterpillar and his metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly hits the target in this department.
I retired from teaching primary students several years ago. I also retired from the U.S. Army. And now, in-between the adventures my husband and I find ourselves mixed up in, I find moments to write. There’s a whole world out there waiting for you to share it’s story!
