[How acquired: birthday gift]
I decided to give this book a peek in November; which usually isn’t the best time for Wrimos to to anything related to writing since they are supposed to be writing their novels that month – quantity over quality and all that good stuff.
Reading this in short bursts made me think a little bit more about my story. It’s really a great book for younger people who want to write but don’t feel like they could. It gives a lot of pointers on remembering you don’t have to follow any certain rules if you don’t want to.
Both writers are accomplished authors in the young writing field – whether it be picture books, middle grade, or young adult books. The honest and enthusiastic vibe of this “handbook” makes me want to give a peek at some of their fiction writing.
Only when writing this post did I realize there is a whole plethora of support and encouragement tied to this book. If you know anyone younger who needs a push to write; or even a little positive reinforcement yourself, give this book a peek.
Even if you don’t read the book, take a peek at all the motivational help and prompts on the book’s site: spillinginkthebook.com
