More about my Writing
I’ve shared with you why I write, snippets of my fiction writing, and you read my nonfiction writing every time you read my blog, and a few other things I think about writing. But, I don’t think I have told you all the other ins and outs about my writing. How long I have been writing? What type of writing I do: fiction or non-fiction, genre, and such. So, today I thought I’d share a bit more about my writing using four questions.
How long have you been writing:
To answer that question truthfully, for as long as I can remember. Ever since I learned to write, I’ve written down stories. I haven’t always written consistently though and I suppose not many people my age do many thing consistently unless they are necessary for life or required by their parents. However, I have changed drastically in my writing habits in the last six months. I went from writing only for school assignments with the brief attempt at a story getting jotted down, to writing nearly every day. So, I’ve been writing seriously for about 10 months. Since May, I have written nearly 100,000 words including two middle-grade fiction books. However, I am constantly evolving in my skills so the things I just wrote this summer seem shockingly immature as I learn new ways of spinning a tale every day!
Fiction or Non-Fiction:
A mix! I write non-fiction for my blog and a bit for school and then fiction for the rest of the time.
Middle-grade contemporary and historical fiction. Those are my favorite genres to read and write.
Best Resource I’ve found on writing:
There are so many awesome recourses on writing, a lot that are free, but I am going to have to go with this crazily amazing one, called The Young Writer’s Workshop. When I first joined I was blown away by how amazing it was.
I hope you enjoyed reading a bit more about my writing!
Thank you for reading!
Until next time,
