If you don’t see the book you want on the shelf, write it. – Beverly Cleary

If ever you’re thirsting for a book but you just can’t find it in the library after hours of searching, go ahead and write it yourself!

One of my most recent books started like this. In one of my classes, we were talking about an interesting topic, and I decided to write a short story based on what we discussed, which is turning into a proper book.

I’m writing a first draft and reminding myself that I’m simply shovelling sand into a box so that later I can build castles.
– Shannon Hale

When you’re writing your first drafts, remember that it’s only the first step! They don’t have to be good! So keep going with your writing, no matter what — you never know what will happen!

Being a perfectionist, I find it really hard to remember that first drafts are simply drafts, but I find it is very constructive just to jot down ideas — even if it’s just a list of things you’re going to include, or a brief scene that you’ll add to later.

About the Blogger

I’ve been writing since I was very young and started my first proper book when I was about eight or nine years old. Almost ten years later I’m still really enjoying it. Although I’m not perfect at writing (and it’s reassuring that no one is), I do have some experience of what things work (or don’t work) for me and I’ve written some of them on this blog to inspire you to keep writing. I hope you find it helpful!

I have to balance this blog with writing and school work, as well as other things, so please be patient if I don’t reply quickly!
