Emmy Clarke from the UK is a 20-year-old lady with autism.
Emily’s dream was to learn the skill of writing and then write stories for the children in her life. However, like many would-be children’s authors she struggled to find any solid how-to information on the subject and as a result she didn’t know how or where to start.
When Emily first discovered WriteStorybooksForChildren.com she was impressed by how professional it seemed. The website exuded trust and confidence and she felt the course was worth a shot.
Prior to taking the course, the biggest challenge for Emily was with ‘planning’ her stories before she sat down to write them. She found it highly frustrating to plan her stories and as a result, it made the process of writing much more demanding than it needed to be.
Emily is not alone in this. Many newbie children’s authors use an inefficient planning process when crafting a story, which then becomes an arduous task. This interferes with their natural creativity and motivation to write.
Fortunately, using some of the professional techniques she picked up from the ‘Write Storybooks For Children’ training modules, Emily discovered that ‘planning’ was actually a fun part of the process when done correctly. Importantly, it made the story flow a lot easier.
Despite the day-to-day challenges of living with autism, Emily was able to self-publish her first book called “Luch & Friends”, under the pen name, Emmy Clarke. This is an immense achievement for Emily. She is proof that, with the right mind-set and the right guidance, you really can achieve anything you put your mind to.
I had to leave college because that environment and my autism did not mesh very well. But, this course has enabled me to achieve what I once thought was impossible! Doing this course from home was an amazing step, and I’m already working on my next book!
I definitely feel more confident after taking the ‘Write Storybooks For Children’ course. Before, I’d been so nervous about putting a single word down. Now, I have more faith in myself. Nothing is more strengthening to the heart than to have faith in your own writing.Emmy Clarke
