As a writer I feel that one is not complete unless they experience a wide variety of styles and ideas. The more one experiences different prospectives in ideas and feelings the more one becomes fullfilled. I deliberately try all topics age range and moods to challenge myself. but there is maybe one or two I won't explore because I feel it is not necessary and brings nothing new to the reader. In other words I won't ''write obvious'', meaning I won't state the obvious in my writing. So the question is: do you think that all of us should at some stage relate to children and children's stories and engage in writing or at least experiencing a children's story but the most fun to write?
