Writing Fiction for Children

August 14, 2015

Rhonda's bannerSuppose you want to write a fictional story for children. What are some of the things you need to do? One of the first steps is deciding on your message. For example, in my first fiction story, Charlie the Horse, I wanted my young readers to know how important it is to focus on your work and always try your best, even if you’re not in the mood that day. Charlie had all sorts of trouble concentrating on his work during his training. He would much rather eat the tulips and daffodils that decorated the sides of the race track! He liked to think about his appetite, as well. He was always ready for dinner! Charlie wanted to become a famous race horse like his dad, Charles the Great, but he had a lot to learn before he could reach his goal. One of the things I did to make my story fun for young children is to make the horses talk to one another. That way, readers can smile at their amusing thoughts and statements. For example, here’s Charlie having a chat with his mentor, retired race horse, General Quick. “You will become a star if you remember how important it is not to give up when you’ve had a bad day. We all have them. You need to stay focused on what you want most and you will do fine,” said the General.
