Hey! I just wanted to let you all know about this really cool group for young writers called Go Teen Writers. At a book signing, I met Jill Williamson and she told me about it. I've been a member for nearly a year now with the community and awesome blog posts have really helped my writing and inspired me to make this blog. ^ ^
On the Go Teen Writers blog, you can read lots of neat posts about writing such as plotting, brainstorming, outlining, and more. They also cover being a writer with topics like avoiding procrastination, motivating yourself to writer, what's it like to be an author, and such.
On the Facebook group you can interact with the founders Stephanie Morrill (author of Me, Just Different), Jill Williamson (author of The Blood of Kings Trilogy) and many other young writers.
Networking is really important for writing, so if you're a young writer check out this great Go Teen Writers group!
They also have their new book, Go Teen Writers: How to Turn Your First Draft into a Published Book, coming out which I'm so psyched to get!
Here's the back cover copy:
The question we hear most from new writers is, "How do I get published?" And the answer is: Respect your dream Every writer's journey is different, yet as we've reflected on our experiences and those of the writers around us, we've seen time and time again that those who are successful are the ones who had the patience and endurance to stick with this writing thing. They didn't look for shortcuts (at least, not for long), nor did they quit after five, ten, or one hundred rejections. We can't make the process easy for you, but it's our hope that this book will be a tool you can turn to time and time again when you're thinking, "Okay ... what's next?" Includes tips for: -Getting published -Finding the right agent -Book surgery -Thicker plots -Deeper characters -Richer settings -Weaving in theme -Dealing with people who don't get your writing
