So I’ve decided to make a new challenge for myself. This is one that is making me nervous just thinking about.
A little back story, my oldest son and I have a very strong bond. I have a great bond with all my kids, but for the beginning of my oldest son’s life it was just he and I. I always tell him he is my hero because he saved me from a very dark situation. Without him I don’t know if I would have come out of it. So he is my little hero. He loves super hero’s such as Batman and captain America (thank you Auntie Bry Bry). I’m not into superhero’s. I have nothing against anyone who likes them. I even support my one in his love of superheroes which is apparent by the millions of superhero toys he has in his room. I just can’t get over how unrealistic it is. So nothing bad for anyone who likes them. I read Batman books to my kids and play superheroes with them and dress up and everything.
Now back to my point. Because my oldest son loves superheroes and he is my hero, I’ve decided to write a children’s book for him. I want to give it to him as a birthday present. Why am I so nervous you ask? Because, other than this blog, I have not shared my writing with anyone. Not even my children. Before now, I was not confident in my writing and didn’t want anyone to tell me it was terrible or that I should choose a different dream. But, since this year is all about challenging myself and getting out of my shell, I’ve decided to go for it. His birthday is in October so I have plenty of time. But I hope to get it done soon so I can share it with all of you and get some critiques before I give it to him.
What is some advice you all have for me in my quest to making a superhero book? I’m wanting to make it a little more realistic. Any and all feedback is welcome and appreciated. Share your thoughts.
