fishing for epiphany's
So I'm writing a story called 'Stephany had epiphany's,'
I have some lined up, the realisation that angry people are scared is one.
But I wouldn't mind some input. The story could jumpstart some wisdom into kids who might otherwise not think about certain stuff. Be nice to just blend some interesting universal insights into a kids story without it being preachy.
I could use some examples as impetus to construct childish situations in which these things revealed themselves to Stephany.
Some of them are not cerebral but I cannot write the stuff I've seen into a kids book. I was with a mum and her 3 year old while the 3 year old was having a bath once and the little girl discovered her vagina in that she looked up in intense wonder with a hand between her legs and whispered breathlessly. "I have a hole!"
No Stephany is somewhere in the seven to ten range.
