Thanks! It’s really helpful hearing others’ opinions on things like this. I think I will try a little harder to incorporate what I hear back from my readers, but remember that as the author, I have a say in it too.
Oh my goodness yes! Difficult, deep, questions are my favorite things to write about just because there’s so much to them. So much to consider and so many points of view! But, yeah, I’m not so great at writing light-hearted bedtime stories. Like you said, different people, different tastes.
Your other 2 points were also very helpful, thank you!
