I was at church today leading the intermediate age girls. And one of my year sevens said she would like to be a writer. My heart, it stopped. Out of all the girls there that wanted to be teachers, she wanted to be a writer. I was very proud (naturally)
And that got me one to thinking. When I was her age, I wanted to be a writer, but I didn't understand how any of the writing worked. That was until I joined GoTeenWriters that I learned to unlock the inner writer deep down in the depth of my heart.
There is one thing I have learned from being a writer, and that is that your characters are your best friends.
People might tell you that they are not real. But they are wrong! Your fictional characters are just as real as you and me. And as a writer, I feel it my job to give them life.
I was thinking about my novel I'm going to write for camp NaNo next month. And I'm just so exited to getting to know my MC's. And I know at the end of the month I will come out with some amazing fictional friends.
How to be Invisible and Rule the World: Update
I have never written a contemporary before. I was going to write a story called "dance with me" but never ended up going any where with it.
So How to be Invisible and Rule the World is going to be based loosely off me and my friends experiences, and characteristics. So Gabriel is a larger part of a friend of mine, but mixture of other people. Same with Inga, she is mostly a big part of me, but a mixture of other people. And it the end they will become who they want to be.
Hope you guys like the picture collage thing I made for it. I will give you all some more (proper) updates later. I'm still trying to put all the pieces of the story together.
HELP: This story is going to be narrated by both Inga and Gabriel. But I have never written in a males perspective. Don't know what I'm doing. Can you guys give me some tips in the comments? That would be great.
