What we write is not always read with our own filter…

   

I took this picture at the airport to remind me to go re-read Are you there, God? It’s me, Margaret. I know I liked that book as a child and I too remember it mostly being about puberty. But here in an interview with the author she writes about how she actually wrote it to be about the child’s relationship with God. So I want to go back and read it through that “filter of her intent”, but also, to remind myself that sometimes we make things for one reason and it gets recognized for other reasons (sometimes good, sometimes bad). 🙂 I’m in the process of writing children’s books right now (simple ones, and one of which I hope to get out quite soon) and I want to start a chapter book soon, but want to keep things like this in mind!
