Update. Dumped the book I was working on. I Put it on the back burner, for a book I have more immediate passion for. With two weeks into it. I've written over 20 chapters with a plan for around 50 some. It'll be a book directed to teens all about getting a job, and the value of work and continuing education outside the classroom.

Great goal Evan! A helpful tip: do a search for online organizations/ forums. I've received tips for writing in children/youth categories, current interests, and fiction. Point is each has its own tone/style of writing. Much was free and provided some solid tips/advice. Forgot who, but someone here had expressed interest in a writers guild.
I've done technical writing/editing for years. Personally, leaving the tech stuff behind me feels like the binding was cut on my wings. Love editing any but my own, lol! In school we were advised to put what we wrote aside for 24 hours. Then go back to read it with a fresh eye and perspective. Kinda like seeing the wrinkles in your clothes with the light on!
Know your target niche as in how they like to be 'spoken' to, just as the advice we receive here at WA constantly reminds us. In a book there is a time (space/length) to be warm and inviting, then to get solid into the 'meat' of your solid content. Even in informative content, you can't leave your reader hanging without a conclusion. Providing references is key too.
You can PM if you'd like. Just getting back to work from MIA due to family life changing circumstances. Looking forward to doing more!

Thanks so much for your response. I'm working on non fiction right now. That is awesome that you have some books out. Some people only dream of writing and publishing a book.

Hey Evan! I have just started writing children's books (I am going to publish my first this week!). It depends on what you are interested in writing - fiction or non fiction and who your audience would be.

That's awesome! In all honesty I've been working on non-fiction books. Right now I'm working on a non fiction book on self improvement. That being said. I would still like to publish children's books one day. I think I would enjoy revisiting some fairy tales and changing things up a bit. That is awesome to hear!!! Power to you! That's so exciting! ;)

Self-improvement can be a huge section! maybe one way to think of an idea would be to go to amazon and type in "self-improvement book for" and see what suggestions would come up. Much like the alphabet soup technique with keywords!
