children’s books: passion

When I write children’s books some of the characters usually have a passion for what they do.  Charlene the Star, was expected to become a famous racehorse, but she didn’t like racing. Instead, she found another talent she loved developing. Charlene’s little brother, Charlie, on the other hand, loved racing. He spent time learning how important it is to set goals, if you want to be your best. When you have passion for what you do, it helps you succeed because you’re having fun. It doesn’t matter whether you write children’s books or something else.

Have you heard of Sky Sudberry? She’s nine years-old and she’s already discovered her passion. She loves playing golf. At her tender age, she’s already participated in the World Championship. She “practices every day.” She has a great work ethic and believes, “The harder you work, the better you get,” something also echoed by famed golfer Gary Player. Sky says,  golf is “really fun.” She’s ” really happy when she gets an eagle.” She’s even made a movie called “The Short Game.” When she was promoting the movie she appeared on The Ellen Show, Jimmy Kimmel, Piers Morgan, and others. Sky played in the “Drive, Chip, and Put Contest” winning second place. What does she say about the experience?  She said, it was “awesome” and “Perfection times three.” Does that mean Sky will relax now? Not at all. She said her success “just motivates me to practice more.”  She enjoys ” keeping calm and going with the flow.” That’s a great attitude, don’t you think? Since she doesn’t get nervous, she can plan her path to success more easily.

Sky is already incredibly knowledgeable about golf. She could write a great children’s book about it someday. I’ll bet kids would love it.

I hope you find your niche and have a passion for whatever you do. I love writing children’s books. I’d be greatly honored if you enjoyed reading them as well. Stop by and share your thoughts.
