Get Engaged (No Ring Required!)

When editors ask for characters that grow and change, they aren’t asking for a story about life’s lessons. They don’t mean they want a lecture on manners disguised as a story. What they want is for the situation in the story to have an impact on the main character that causes growth and change. And they want it to happen during a story that engages and entertains.

When you are totally engaged, you can’t help but learn from the experience. When kids are little they play and learn at the same time.

So how do we engage the youngest reader so that they both enjoy and learn from what we write? Listen to the full episode to find out!
