So, I have decided I want to pursue my childhood dream of writing a children’s story book. Here is what I’ve written. It’s FAR from ready to pursue as an actual book, I’ve only just finished writing it. Gentle critique and ideas would be lovely – but obviously this is close to my heart, so please be nice about it 🙂
Amelia has a big family. She has two mums, two dads, three sisters and two brothers. (dog – “what about me?!”)
Amelia has two houses.
In this green house Amelia lives with her Mum, step dad, two sisters and one brother.
In this red house Amelia lives with her Dad, step mum, sister and brother.
At the green house Amelia has her own bedroom. Her bedroom looks like it could be floating on clouds of fairy floss… Amelia loves pink!
At the red house, Amelia shares her bedroom with her sister. They chose ocean-blue to paint their walls. Amelia and her sister love the crashing waves of the ocean.
At the green house Amelia likes to play with her two sisters. Amelia likes to be the teacher. Her sisters think she is a bossy boots!
At the red house, Amelia likes to play with her brother and her sister. They play outside on the trampoline. No-one will ever be found if they hide in the flower-bed!
Amelia has two families. Two houses. Two lives.
They are very different from one another.
They are different colours, have different people and have different activities.
But Amelia’s two lives have one thing in common.
It is something VERY important.
Both houses, and both families LOVE Amelia very, very much.
Amelia is very lucky, she has TWO houses, TWO families, TWO bedrooms, and best of all…FOUR parents and FIVE brothers and sisters…
who LOVE her.
