I am an author of Children’s Story Books. My books consist of mainly photo illustrations of which I shoot myself and/or use royalty free illustrations supplied by Dreamstime.com. As a Children’s Book author, I develop most of my stories over time with many thought provoking spurts throughout a day, week, or month. These thought provoking spurts include deciding what illustrations I may need for the story line.

These thoughts may or may not be part of the final book, but I need a process of remembering these illustrations that come to mind so that I can formulate the completion of the book with all of my thoughts that I have accumulated throughout the book creation process.

Hey, don't feel so bad. I am 60 years old. I believe this is the perfect age to start your publishing journey. It is fun and very self-fulfilling, even if you do not make money...you are making memories for those to come. Good Luck and keep me posted on your progress.

When I first came upon Dreamstime, it struck me quite strongly as I was thinking of writing some memoirs of my childhood, which I thought I could improvise and develop into some sort of fantasy story incorporating some local folklore and mythology. Then, I Kinda procrastinated for a while. And now I finally read through your notes and became inspired by your thoughts. I hope I will be able to pursue my thoughts and compose something out of them. Inshallah. May God help me.
I am 66 but nevertheless, better late than never.
