“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
― Madeleine L’Engle
Sometimes I wonder why it is that I am drawn to writing children’s literature. Then I read a quote like this from a writer like her, and I remember that just because it’s for kids doesn’t mean that it isn’t challenging, engaging and compelling literature. I thank L’Engle for reminding me of that. Write what you love and the audience will find you.
