Writing comes in many forms and many shapes. They can be long or they could be less than a full page. Sometimes we need help figuring out what project to venture into next when it comes to our writing. That is why I like The Everything Creative Writing Book by Carol Whiteley.
What does it take to write? That is question that many prospective writers think about before diving into writing as a career. The many questions for those looking into the career of a writer can be overwhelming. So how are they suppose to answer these questions? I have the answer in a book I recently discovered.
I love books. You can find me curled up with one most hours of the day. However, it is hard to carry heavy books with you in your bag and running around trying to manage life. When life was on-the-go (pre-COVID), I would use one app to bring my bookshelf with me no matter where I go. It made a bunch of novels the weight of a cell phone.
Being a writer can be intimidating especially if you are trying to figure it out. Even as a blogger, I have to studied the art of writing. An art I thought I would never have to study. I have read several guides to writing and each write about the do’s and don’ts. They offer harrowing tails of rejection letters and finding agents. Which is good information but not what I am looking for in encouragement. However, my most recent read has become the guide I never knew I needed.
Most high schoolers either dread English class or love it. I was part of the dreaded group and I know I was not alone. The funny thing was I loved to read books and write creative stories. I just needed … the right push. Thanks To Mr. K from my senior year at high school I got to participate in an amazing program that helps young writers. It is called NaNoWriMo.
