Here are my top ten writing tips for children published recently in Just Kidding Magazine. I hope you find lots of inspiration. I learnt much of this while writing the My Life series of short stories.
You can find more tips, story starters and interviews with some brilliant children's authors over on my Create page. Or, if you write a funny short story, you might want to enter my new short story competition for a chance to win some great prizes.
Teachers and parents should also take a peek at 'Tall Stories', a recent article in Haven Magazine that I contributed to on how to spark a child's imagination.
