TIPS FOR YOUNG WRITERS...
1. READ! READ! READ!
2. Keep a notebook for story ideas that pop into your head.
3. Get some writing friends.
4. It's good to do a rough outline before you start so you'll know how to end the story as well.
5. Give your main character a big problem to overcome. CONFLICT is essential!
6. Read your story aloud - you'll hear if it sounds wrong.
7. Never give up. Keep reading, writing and thinking.
