Understanding how it feels

If you intend to write for children, you must be able to relate to their anti-authoritarian emotions.

There will be many significant incidents in your childhood that you have carried with you into your adult life. Try to remember exactly how you felt when they happened, what emotions you experienced and how long it took you to get over them.

It is surprising just how much stays with us into adulthood, especially if we have been at the receiving end of particularly spiteful or thoughtless behaviour.
