Story Competition

Tuesday 26th June

I recently entered a story Competition and although I didn’t win, it’s nice to be told that they enjoyed it and it’s a lovely children’s tale, promoting inclusion for all. I’m not going to state what it was about, because I hope to publish something similar myself one day.

it’s nice to be told that they enjoyed it and it’s a lovely children’s tale, promoting inclusion for all.

At the moment, I’m in the middle of writing a children’s fantasy novel. At first, when I started writing a book, I wanted to keep the idea to myself and only tell close people. Not for any other reason than that feeling of self doubt that erupts within from time to time. However, I found letting people know has got me in touch with the right people. Even if it doesn’t get published, I think it’ll be a nice story for my girls to keep and pass on.

The age range is 6-9 years. It’s a really long process and I’ve ended up changing the story quite a bit, but now I’m finally happy with how it’s flowing. I have days where I can easily pick up where I left off and then through general life situations, it can be a few weeks by the time I get back into it.

This book includes both my daughters interests. It may seem a bit of a cliché, but it’s about two sisters, fairies and unicorns. Isabelle loves it so far. Yes, I know she’s biased but she also speaks the truth, as most children do.

Hopefully, something new will be coming up in September. It’s early days to say too much about it, but children’s stories will work together with what I have planned.
