How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
The biggest difference would have to be that the children’s market is far more saturated than the adult market. Being a children’s author requires finding a specific way to catch the interest of a variety of children, who may not have yet found their favorite genre. Most adults have a specific genre they prefer and it’s easier to find an audience within that genre. But, the children’s market is vast and full of a variety of books fighting for an audience.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Stick with it, no matter what. Spend time alone with your work before you share it, and be sure to get the opinions of honest friends and family. Go to the people who won’t be afraid to tell you that it’s not very good. People who just want to tell you it’s wonderful will not help you produce the best work possible. Even if it starts out as a mediocre work, getting constructive feedback will help it become worthy of people’s bookshelves.
Elizabeth Woodrum is a full time elementary teacher in Ohio. She began writing as early as when she was in elementary school, but more recently began writing material for use in her classroom. From that writing, grew the desire to write books for the general population of children and adults alike. The Maisy Files, a children’s series, is the first series that she has published. The series currently has one book, The Missing Mice. Elizabeth plans to add more books to the series, and would also like to publish books for adults in the future.
As a reader, Elizabeth prefers the fantasy genre, but she enjoys realistic fiction as well. Some of her favorite authors include JK Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Rick Riordan, Veronica Roth, Suzanne Collins, and Nicholas Sparks.
Originally from Indiana, Elizabeth currently resides near Dayton, Ohio with her two pets: a cat named Butterscotch and a dog named Reese Cup.
