A series of videos for kids who know they want to be writers
When I was 9 years old, I already knew I wanted to be a writer when I grew up.
Over the next few years, while I was in middle school, I wrote almost every school night, often for an hour or more. I wrote stories, poems, essays, and weird blobs of words that weren't any of those things.
I loved writing -- most of the time. But sometimes I was frustrated because the piece wasn't coming out the way I wanted it to, or I was stuck on one part and didn't know how to move forward. Worst of all was when I had the urge to write, but I didn't have an idea to write about.
I couldn't find a lot of practical advice about how to write. Most advice I found was about getting published. I wanted to be published someday, but first I had to write something to publish!
Now that I'm a published author, I want to share the advice I was missing as a kid. If you know in your heart that you're a writer, these videos are for you.
