Willing to start writing for girls

Post by Towhid0001 » 17 Aug 2013, 12:22

Hi, I am a social worker. Work for the rights of women. We have a community who raise voice against depression of women and let them be punished.

Wow sounds like a great place to start. You definitely have a target audience.
But just be careful, a lot of what you will be writing about may make people on the other end of that voice angry.
You don't want to get into legal costs!!
Good luck!

That's great that you want to start writing for girls. Just make sure that you aren't too critical because rights for women is a very delicate topic.

I think it's wonderful to write for girls. However, its such a limiting thing to do. If you write for both boys and girls, couldn't both groups learn from what you have to say? It is just as important for boys to learn to respect women as well as women learning how to respect themselves. The goal should be to reach a broader audience. Nevertheless, stay inspired. It's a wonderful place to begin.

I think the perspective of a social worker would be interesting to read.

I think the key to writing for young readers is to be encouraging. I believe for girls this is particularly important.

I also think you should write for boys too. They have to learn too.

Be heavy on the drama and uniquness because this will give your story some individuality from other writings like it. But not too dramatic to where it is unrealistic. And try to avoid those controversial topics unless you do not mind the critisism.

I am just curious as to what exactly you mean by this phrase?

Read 'one for the murphy's'
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
