Where Teens Write is closing its doors as a teen writing community, but the “how to write” blog posts will be up for another few weeks.
I’m happy to announce that you can post your stories and get feedback over at Teen Author’s Journal. Like WTW, it’s a smaller community where you can build relationships with others and hone your writing skills.
It’s been a great few years with all of you, but it’s time to close the doors to this community. If you did post stories here that you didn’t save anywhere else, and you’d like them, you may contact me using the contact page, and I’ll get you your story. Thank you for participating.
All the best,
My #1 Tip for Becoming a Better Writer + a Video!!
Have you ever had this experience: you had a great idea for a story, so you spent an afternoon or a week or two, getting it down on paper.
Then, you read through it, but it didn’t seem to work so well, so you revised it. Maybe you asked your mom or good friend for some advice on it. They like it.
“It’s great,” they said.
You read through again. Something wasn’t quite working with it. But, you weren’t sure what that elusive “something” was.
I think as writers we’ve all had that experience, and sometimes it’s hard (really, really hard) to identify what’s working or not in our own stories and how to fix them.
Check out this video (ack – my first video ever so this is a little scary) for my #1 tip for making your writing shine. There’s some bonus tips in there too toward the end.
After you’ve watched, leave a comment below with your biggest struggle when it comes to making your writing shine.
Here’s to sparkly, amazing stories.2 Love This Post
