Picture yourself as a child once again, think about the stories you loved and what messages they gave you.

 I want to read some storys that mean something to you, that tell a story that you would want your child to read.. simple, fun and with a message. Think about what kids like, im thinking kids of about 7-12 so not simple see spot run type stories.

Make sure there is a message, wether it be about self esteem, about family values, different styles of life.. something that will speak to kids.. dont make it to preachy though, remember kids have HUGE imaginations.

Make it up, something new... about anything you like

so go forth and write!

There will be a prize, but i will work it out later!

So.... it can be about anything? We make it up all together or are we basing it off a already existing fairy tale?

Ha ha you know My friend and I are doing this. I'm writing Children's stories and she's going to Illustrate them and the funny thing is. We are writing them about her dog Spot (which we call Spotacus Jones, mainly because after she got in I started singing BasketBall Jones  and substituting Basketball with Spotacus xP), my niece, and her step son. I might share some of the stories I have but we are going to try and get them Published. So be on the look out for The Adventures of Spotacus Jones xP

The Run Away.  Meant to be read with a rhyme.

Where children laugh and sing

In the land on the edge of make believe

Was a boy who lived high in the trees.

By himself he stayed

And all the day he played.

Fighting battles with swords like those in books

Going up against pirates and Capt. Hook

 

Until the darkness came

It was not at all the same

In the dark creature’s sounds

He could hear them all walking around

He was so scared he began to shake

There were tears in his eyes he couldn’t help make

He live alone up in a tree

Up there so high he could see the sea.

He was all alone and….

had no one there when he came home.

The days grew long and the nights cold

And still he lay there wishing of home.

Mom and Dad would be so mad

That he ran away and was bad.

He couldn’t go back down the tree

Back to his home and family

“Peter Pan” he heard her call

It startled him so much that he began to fall

Landing on his mom and dad.

He looked into their eyes and they weren’t mad.

He had wanted to run away

But he only made it to his tree house today.

7-12? that was when I read LOTR...hmm...well, I also loved the Tales of Redwall back then and I guess their children's stories if you subtract the reading level? I could try a story like that...but I'd have to think more on ideas...

I am seriously contemplating doing a short novelization of Shadow Of The Colossus for this (the game's story is almost non-existent, I just love the set-up).

Timmy and Kimmy were two of a kind. They laughed and giggled and played all the time. With smiles so wide and eyes so bright, Timmy and Kimmy played into the night. Now this is a tail of a friendship so strong. A tail of tails of an unbreakable bond. Sticking together as friends often do, comforting eachother when the other was blue. Dreams of adventure and excitment galore, an abundance of action yelling more more more. The years carried on and the two grew apart, closing one chapter so another could start. Timmy set sail for the treacherous seas, while Kimmy settled down with her new family. The nights got colder and lonelier you see, as the two dreamed of love and when they were free. And then the day came when a letter arrived, Kimmy just knew that soul mate had died. For weeks and weeks she trembled and cried, wishing and wishing for one last goodbye.

Knock Knock Knock came a noise from the door, Kimmy had no idea what was in store. Larger then life Timmy stood with a grin, with no explination for where he had been. No ocean nor river not even a pond, could destroy this remarkable unbreakable bond.

That was awesome. For a moment there I was grabbed out of my desk, I just dived in your story. Amazing. It made my day worth.
(And it make me think, it wasn't just an emotional reading, I'm thinking about its message)
