Writing Advice from Story Planet Kids

When asked to create a map of obstacles for his newly invented hero, grade one student, Pragadheesh, created a challenging course that his hero would have to navigate, which included a big snake, a giant cube, and an eyeball monster.

When explaining how his hero would make his way through this treacherous setting he mentioned “there is also a very easy short cut, but that doesn’t make a very good story.”

Writers, take a note from Pragadheesh – Shortcuts may keep your heroes safe, but they won’t keep your readers satisfied.
