The 14 Day Childrens Story

My Childrens Story update

Finally an update for you:  Nick must choose to save his sister or his father?  His sister hangs from a high ready to fall.  His father must be pushed into the river.  He has the opportunity to push his father and save everyone but it will mean allowing his sister to fall and not be able to save her.  A repeat of the beginning but this time he has a choice.  If he lets go of the vine he can reach his father before the transformation and wash away his grief but, if he does he will lose his sister.

This is MY GUIDE from which I am writing my story.

My Childrens Book Day 14

Read your book backwards.
Rather than trying to read your book through from the beginning, start at the end.  Read the last page of the final chapter first, and work backwards.  If there’s anything on the page that shouldn’t be there, chances are you’ll spot it.
Flip through your story and see if there are any pages of solid text.  It’s all about your characters.  The story needs to be revealed through what the characters say and how they act.  Too much description will turn it into an essay.

Day 13 of How to write a Childrens Book in 14 days

Read out loud again!
Dialogue is speech, so it makes sense to check it by speaking it out loud.  Try getting some friends to help you read the different characters.  Don’t feel bad asking for help.  It isn’t a sign of weakness to ask for assistance, it’s a sign of intelligence.
Check for inconsistencies – Does one character use slang? Is it obvious who’s speaking at all times?  Have you used ‘he said’ or ‘she said’ too often?

Day 12 – Childrens Story in 14 days

You need to proofread your work and check for obvious mistakes.  One way to do this is to print out sections in isolation and go through them as if they were completely independent pieces of writing.  If it helps, you can start with the last page and work backwards.  Read the story out loud to check for any blips or problems you may have overlooked.  If possible, try to get someone else to read the story out loud to you.

Day 11 - My Childrens story in 14 days

You need to consider the ending of your story.  You create a series of characters AND a story.  The characters are strong enough to exist separately from a single story.  Any story in which the characters are strong enough can become the springboard for a sequel or spin-off.  But it’s not always necessary.  Sometimes stories need to be wrapped up and put away.  When that’s the case, you need to make sure they come to a definite end.  Every story is different, and every ending should be, too.
