Carrie Pierce on Writing Children’s Stories – The Boomer Woman’s Podcast
“If you’re not okay at this moment in time, then it’s not the end.” Great philosophy from Carrie Pierce as we meandered our way through this age to writing children’s literature.
Carrie’s children’s books may surprise you, but she explains her why and it all makes so much sense. She talks about leaving some of the magic to the reader, whether the reader is a child of ten or a grandparent from an older generation.
Magic is a theme for Carrie – not the abracadabra type, but more the wonder and the whimsy in a child’s mind.
Her description of her method is well worth noting if you have any thoughts of creating stories for children… whether only for your grandchildren or for every eight-year-old in the country.
And then… how to write a book for children!!!
Perhaps it’s family history for family eyes only… and then, in the telling, you realize it may have commercial interest.
Finally, some tips on publishing, and marketing. With a thoughtful finish.
