Go Teen Writers: How to Turn Your First Draft into a Published Book by Stephanie Morrill and Jill Williamson
Back cover: The question we hear the 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 easier 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?”
This book was a gift and… it was an amazing gift. I read it in three days. I know, that is a long time for a book I thought was supposedly ‘amazing’. It IS amazing! There is just SO much helpful information, you want to remember it all, so you can’t possibly remember enough if you read it too fast.
It has tips from plotting and editing, to querying and writers conferences. I’d recommend this book to any writer, not just teens.
There are so many helpful tips and suggestions in it, you’ll go back and read the book (or at least certain parts) again, maybe more than once, just to make sure you’ve the information right.
The Go Teen Writers book is a very good book on the craft of writing, and I highly recommend it.
