1. Have you chosen an age group that you identify with and are confident will relate to the attitudes and behaviour of the characters in your stories?

2. Is your vocabulary designed to build on the literacy skills of your target age group in a way that links in with the National Curriculum and publishers' current reading schemes?

3. Is your story told from a child's perspective?

4. Does your story reflect contemporary society?

5. Have you visited bookshops, libraries, schools etc. to find out what books are popular with today's young reader?

6. Do your child characters solve the problem themselves?
