It’s time for a fresh start.

 

For the moment, forget apps and ebooks.  Forget query letters and page counts. Let’s focus on the one thing that will make or break your career writing for children.

 


YOU.

 

 

To give you the boost you may need right now, we’ve created something we’d like to share with you. A few words that may help you catch a glimpse your own potential.

 

We call it 10 Declarations for the 21st Century Children’s Author, and we think it’s something everyone who writes for children needs to read.  We hope you’ll agree.

    Hi Jon & Laura,
    Is the 10 Declarations For The 21st Century Author printable? It’s very encouraging and I’d like to frame it and hang it on my wall. Thank you for finding this & posting it for us. It’s very encouraging!

    I fully intend to post this on my blog!

    Great reminder of why I wanted to write in the first place and very inspirational. Ditto the above comment about printing a copy to hang on my office wall.

    I’m all in! I’ve recently taken the (bold or crazy?) step of putting all I am into becoming the writer I’ve dreamed of being. I’ve taught elementary age kids for 17 years. Now I want to simply write for them. Your affirmations are just what I needed to keep me focused and motivated. Thank you!

    Thank you so much for these. Was feeling a little down and wanting to give up but am way more positive now. Went onto kindle and found 350 books under the same genre as I am writing and just thought how on earth will my book stand out from the masses. still need to work on this but at least I have the right frame of mind again.

    I am in agreement with everyone who wants to frame and mount these 10 Declarations. Reading them sparks the energy and zeal I wish I always felt. Although I love to write that can-do spirit is not always there. This helps, thank you!
