I really want to be a writer. Just not full time. This doesn't answer all of my questions though. Not even close. I do want to ask her something.
Has she read Chronicals of Chrestomanci by: Diana Wynne Jones?
(Because it's awesome. Highly recommend it.)

I loved this article! I want to be an author since the 5th grade. I write the same way she does! It's annoying sometimes. I wrote a book and am in the process of basically rewriting it because the plot line totally changed... ugh XD but I love it <3

I'm writing a book right now. Patricia is right in saying that you can't edit a book if you haven't finished the rough draft. But that doesn't mean you can't let your ideas evolve; I'm on my third revision and will stay to the end. It's funny how books start. Mine came from an idea of writing a book that would interest my crush. Now it's a passion that I lose myself into when I listen to music, always envisioning what to write and invent next. Abraham's Daughter by Arcade Fire is the best song in the world to listen to for my book. Never give up and don't let others influence you from your main plot and idea for your book. Also, if you are striving for success in your book (I hope that you are), check out the style of VERY popular books. Don't copy the subject and idea but study the style. For example, first person present style with lots of thoughts (from Hunger Games)written out is a great way to write. It helps readers relate to the main character... Good luck everyone!

This is so cool! I have been wanting to write stories since I was writing spelling stories in fifth grade! I entered a writing contest with a story about unicorns with some buddies, but never got any results. GO WANNABE WRITERS!

I love articles like this...
Anything on writing is useful
I want to be an author, too!
And this really made me feel more confident because I was just thinking about how impossible my dream is and how in comparison my first draft looks terrible(because I kind of write like Caroline Stevermer)...but I will keep writing and praying and maybe one day my dreams will come true!
