If you want to master the craft, write regularly. Hone your
writing skills while learning from the masterpieces of other children’s book artists.
Pen your first draft.
While it’s certain that publishing a children’s book is exhausting,
don’t lose hope in your first draft. Know your young readers’ target age.

Find different communities of writers
to widen your network. Interact and build relationship.
In this way, you target prospects without hurting your budget.
Strive, don’t get stuck at rejections.
In this kind of business, you have to expect the worst but hope for the best. Don’t be easily devastated, instead carry on
until your book becomes a masterpiece.
