I had some successes in my 30s as a writer. I just submitted an assignment to my new writing teacher at Institute of Children’s Literature back in November. I got the assignment back and my new writing teacher gave me amazing feedback. I am so happy about it. I feel like I can possibly have a career as a children’s author. A friend of mine said that he had an experience in his childhood with children’s poetry through Shel Silverstein’s books for children. I like Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss. I want to be able to write for children but I just wanted to be clear that I do not have an agenda. I just want to be able to write for children.
I am not going to ever compare myself with anyone else.
