CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR GRADUATES

I’m sending  a bouquet of love to all our First Baptist high school graduates with a special bouquet to Jordyn Parker and Luke Blentlinger.  Jordyn and I teamed up as friends when the Parkers first moved to First Baptist and  moved to Signal Mountain where I also live. Jordyn was in the fifth grade then.  Now she’s signed up to attend Berry College, Rome, Georgia.
Luke was the kid I picked to read an earlier edition of Behind Enemy Lines.  That was many years ago and both Luke and Bobby, my main character, have done a lot of growing up.  For the past three years he has worked as a server at Alexian and has done a great job.  Luke will attend the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Georgia.  He’ll be a freshman where his older brother finishes u his college career in 216.

NUTS AND BOLTS
WRITING FOR CHILDREN

While it isn’t an ironclad rule, if you are not a seasoned children’s writer, you will fare better by stick to a single point of view.  That means your story  must be told solely through the eyes of the main character.
Likewise most children books are written in the third person(he said, she said)
Much of what I’m going to write about next week has to do with any kind of fiction writing whether it’s for children or adults.
