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.
