Do Your Children Sometimes Inspire Your Writing?

Having children has certainly been a big help in understanding the way that younger people think.  I spend a lot of time reading with them, and seeing what engages them in other books.  This has been an excellent help to me in my writing.

So far, I haven’t taken any of their specific ideas–but they’re still a little young.  They do offer suggestions, but they tend to be things like, “You need a big orange dinosaur that builds itself a robot suit to fight ninjas.”

On second thought, that’s a pretty cool idea, isn’t it?
