Well, I was hoping to be able to keep posting on a regular basis, but…
…that didn’t exactly happen.
There’s this little thing called “high school” going on for me right now, and I’ve always had a bit of a hard time balancing all the activities in my life, prioritizing what needs to get done and getting it done efficiently. Some things have had to take a seat on the backburner for a while, and one of those things was blogging.
I’ve really missed getting posts out regularly and interacting with you all, and I promise I haven’t dropped off the face of the planet completely! I’m still here and still writing, and I have a lot of great ideas for posts coming soon. Until then, I hope that you’re all doing well and staying safe. 🙂
I’ve popped in today to share a really exciting announcement!
I’ve followed the amazing blog Go Teen Writers for some time now, which is run by the talented and encouraging authors Stephanie Morrill, Jill Williamson, and Shannon Dittemore. They have so many fantastic tips to share with budding teen authors, and I highly recommend checking it out!
Recently, these awesome ladies announced the December release of their second Go Teen Writers book (a companion to Go Teen Writers: Edit Your Novel), and today is the day to unveil the gorgeous cover!
(okay, I won’t keep you in suspense any longer)
Eeeee, I’m so excited!!! It looks like such an amazing book!
To get you even more excited, here’s the blurb:
You have a story to tell, don’t you? Or maybe you simply want to try your hand at fiction writing. Perhaps you’ve given it your best effort, but simply didn’t have enough tools in your tool box to finish that first draft. Wherever you’re at with this novel-writing thing, popular bloggers Stephanie Morrill, Jill Williamson, and Shannon Dittemore totally understand.
They know it’s hard to finish a first draft. To stay motivated until the end. To feel like a “real” writer. They know because they’ve been there too.
In Go Teen Writers: Write Your Novel, you’ll learn:
- There is no such thing as one right way to write a novel.
- How to take an idea and give it a beginning, middle, and end.
- What story structure means and how it strengthens a book.
- Different approaches to plotting a novel.
- How to develop characters worth reading about.
- Strategies for creating memorable storyworlds and settings.
- What theme is and how to use it to enrich your story.
- What to do when your first draft is finished.
There’s no doubt about it. Learning to write a novel from beginning to end is a challenge. But with this book as your guide, you’ll see that when you’re in possession of the right tools, you’re capable of finishing what you start. You’ll be empowered and encouraged – as if you had a writing coach (or three!) sitting alongside you.
How many times do you think I can use the word “amazing” in one blog post? Because this book truly sounds amazing. 😉
If you can’t wait to get this book, you can head over to the Go Teen Writers purchase link to preorder the book!
Again, if you’re a writer, I encourage you to check out this blog. You’ll get so many great tips from these ladies. 🙂
How are you doing, friends? Any fellow writers think this book sounds amazing? (See, I said “amazing” again.) 😉 Let’s talk in the comments!
