Advice to budding writers


My advice to people who want to write…

Just get stuck in and do it. Also, read heaps. The more you read, the better you will write. Keep a diary of the important things that happen to you and write how you feel about them. Put the date on the diaries and don’t ever throw them away. You believe at the time when something big happens that you’ll never forget, but things change and what is a catastrophe this year might not be important next year and you’ll find it hard to believe you got so wound up about your mate beating you in a game — or whatever. But it’s information like this that will help you write about a kid of, say, ten when you are older.
