Hi guys! I’ve had quite a few people ask me what advice I would give to young, new writers. I figure if they are interested, you might be as well, so here’s what I had to say:
The best advice I have is this:
1. Read a lot, because the more you read, the more you understand how to write a great book.
2. If you want to be a writer, the best way to get good at it is practice. Write a lot! Try out different stories and see what you like writing.
3. Be patient with yourself. The ability to be a good writer is not something that someone is just born with. They have to work at it, and they have to do a lot of revising. Things won’t turn out perfect the first time, ever, even when you’re a published writer!
4. Last, Believe in yourself and your dreams. Anything is possible! Go out there and change the world!
p.s. Here is a link to a short video I made of the house where STUNG begins.
