As a children’s author, I can’t resist another quote by Michelle Paver, this time specifically for those who write for children. We’d all do well to remember this – the temptation is strong at times, especially if you, like me, are a teacher or write for the schools market. Or both 😦 !

“I definitely don’t write with any kind of ‘message’ or ‘lesson,’ probably because when I was a child, I used to run a mile from books like that.” 
Michelle Paver

We should all  x-ray our work-in-progress for hidden moralising; it creeps in more easily than we think!
