Create Your Author Platform | Writing for Children 157
Episode of
Writing for Children
CREATE YOUR AUTHOR PLATFORM What IS a platform? It’s your visibility. The wider your reach, the more books you can sell. What you do with your platform is try to reach (in an authentic way) your target audience. It’s all about connecting—with people on a real level and because of your reach, you are able to sell books. It’s not about being in people’s faces and hollering about buying your book. So, who needs a platform and where do you begin? Let's talk about it in this episode.

Being Inspired by Everyday Objects | Writing for Children 154
Episode of
Writing for Children
BEING INSPIRED BY EVERYDAY OBJECTS It's human nature to become attached to things. We connect specific memories to objects: when we received it, who we received it from, how we've used it. Also, objects are wonderfully concrete and specific, we feel the weight of them in our hands and see the effects of age on the object. As a result, objects can also make wonderful story and poetry starters. Get a FREE peek into Writers' Block here: http://instituteforwriters.com/freewritersblock
