Okay, here’s another thing I’m having trouble with. One of the characters in my book is a young boy about 8 years old. I want to write a short story about two kids, a girl of, say 5, and a boy of about 7 or 8. So… how do I do it? I don’t have a lot of experience with kids, and so I’m at a loss. How do they think? How do they move? Feel? Act? Emote? I guess I have to spend some time with kids. Maybe I should start kid-sitting again.
