A Letter to Young Writers

Dear young writers,

Never think that you are too young to have anything worthy to say; each person you meet, experience you have, idea you dream, or world you imagine offers infinite possibilities for your writing.

Capture these kernels of creativity in a journal or writer's notebook. Include photographs, words, snippets of overheard conversations, poems, quotes, song lyrics - anything that makes you tingle, smile, cry, cringe, tremble, shout.

Free write, list, doodle, imagine, wonder, dream. Record your triumphs, loves, losses, and hurts. This will be your treasure trove of writing ideas, and you will always have something to mine. Trust me; you will be glad you did.
