As a writer for children, I have to make sure that I remember to think and act like a kid. This means that I skip, jump in puddles, dance in the rain, swing, go down slides, explore, find new things, put things in my pockets, be silly, dance without refrain, laugh, play, and the list goes on and on. Luckily, for me, I like thinking and acting like a kid. It's fun. It makes me see the world with new eyes. And it makes me a better writer. So excuse me while I stop blogging, and I go climb a tree.
