Does anyone else desire to write or have written children's books?

I have a few ideas for children's books. I have an allegorical story and an adventure story. I am, however, having difficulty finishing them. This is a long process. I am even more discouraged by the whole publishing process. However, this is a dream of mine! So, I think I will give it a try.

What a great question! I would love to write a children's book. Children are such avid readers. They love to be entertained. Follow your dream! Do it.

Great for you!!! I will be looking forward to reading it. I have had some desire to writing children's stories, and have done some research on the whole process. It is quite an undertaking, and I can understand your frustrations with the publishing process. Good luck with your dreams!!!

When I was in high school I took a Children's book writing class. We could to self-publish our own book and get a copy or two of the book (hard cover and all) I made one for my first nephew. The whole book was dedicated to him and couldn't wait for him to be born to read it someday! Sure enough it was one of his favorite books! I did all the illustrations and writing for it. I am more intersted in sci fi and fantasy novels, but still wouldn't mind going back to a children's book here or there. If you have ideas, go for it!

Even before I became I mom, I wanted to write for children. My brother has volunteered to do the illustrations. I have some raw ideas about the story lines for several projects. Perhaps I just need to sit down and really get to start it. Wish me luck!

It takes a lot of work, but it can be done. I have been published several times as a ghostwriter and am working with a publisher to develop an imprint for a line of children's books.

I've always wanted to attempt that, even if it was just a book for my daughter to read. But I don't have the time or patience.
