Writing Exercises

In today’s writing exercise, write from a child’s perspective. It can sometimes be difficult to write from the eyes of a child. Many authors get caught up in capturing their dialogue or child speak and nothing else.  The real challenge is getting into the mindset of the child while maintaining a narrative that’s clear and concise.

Here are a few ground rules for you:

  • The child must be between the ages of 2-6 years old.
  • Boy, girl, or twins–doesn’t matter.
  • Avoid writing in child speak in the dialogue or narrative.
  • Set your story during another era, for example: 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s.
  • Use the picture below as inspiration.

Happy writing!
