The first time I attempted to write a children's book, it took me three months and several years of promising myself that I would do it "one day." In that time, I managed to wash the dog, rearrange my closet, get my apartment so clean that they should have done a commercial about it and procrastinate in ways that gave the word a new name. When I actually sat down to write the book, it took me two days. That is the longest it has ever taken me to actually write a children's book, since then. In reality, unless you are writing an epic, it will not take you more than that period of time to write yours either, after you read this book. Why then the title How to Write a Children's Book in 30 Days or Less ? So that you will have the time to wash the dog, clean the closets and get Mr. Clean to personally come in and interview you. If fear or the excuse that there is never enough time has kept you from fulfilling your dream, sit back, relax and prepare to be amazed. Your first book is just thirty days away.
