Picture Book Prompt 11

“My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them.” —Jack Kerouac

Children are full of passion and wanting.

And its arguable that part of the work  of childhood is learning how to manage them, how to control them.

Write about a passion that a child might have. Write about what it might look like, what it might feel like, how it might put them in conflict with their environment. Write about how they might come to understand and have some agency over it.
