Writing an article can be very simple compared to writing stories for children. Many writers, who write articles, just keep writing the same facts in different methods and different ways. Writing children's stories is not that simple. It needs a lot of effort and a few simple ideas will help the writer get off to a great start. There are a few tips and simple ideas that will help write children's stories.

1. Imagination and creativity:
This is the basic ingredient for a story written for children. Only stories that are imaginative and creative will be enjoyed by children. The writer needs to be so creative that each story written should be different, but should be imaginative.

2. Simple story: Though the story should be filled with creativity, it should be written in simple language that can be understood by the children. This will make them understand the story more.

3. Number of characters: If the story is complicated or if it has too many characters, then it becomes difficult for children to understand the story and remember it. So there should also be very few characters in the story.

4. Illustrations: Pictures kindle the imagination of children with the colour and the pictures. Though the story is more important, the illustrations are also important for the children to understand the story and remember it for a longer time.

5. Practice: For the writer to write good stories and reap rich rewards, practicing the art of storytelling is important. One of the best ways of doing this is to have some of the neighbourhood kids or the writer's own kids to listen to the stories. If they seem to like the storyline, the writer can add a few more ideas to it and get the story ready.

These are the simple tips that will help the writer to write a children's story. Once a child likes a story, then the parents will like to buy similar books from the same author. It will also spread by word of mouth to a lot of people and the author will soon become a hit. This is the advantage of writing for children.

Though the writer may need more creativity to write initially, once the writer has become a hit, then there is nothing stopping the author from selling more and more copies of his stories. One great example of this is JK Rowling who wrote the Harry Potter series.
