Stories for My Kids

It’s been a while, but I’m back. The writing's been good, but the last few months of the previous year had just a little too much going on for me to get to blogging.

One thing I’ve been up to lately is writing stories for my kids. Now that they're old enough to understand (and read), I’ve found that I can write short stories specifically for them. It’s really satisfying to see their faces light up as they read a story I’ve written about them (either as pirates or explorers or something they’re really into that week). They really like it when I insert them and family or friends into the stories too.

Not only does it give them a love of reading, I’ve found it to be some of the most satisfying writing I’ve ever done. It’s really inspiring to be able to hash out a short story, print it out the next day, and see you readers getting so much joy out of it. I think I need to make this a habit going forward.
